The trail was well maintain, even safe for kids to run. There are two resthouse in the trail. We only did 6-miles around trip since we have kid with us. There are lots of hiker on... More

We only went down about 1 mile and it was just beautiful where we went. It's a killer going back up, but you feel a great sense of accomplishment.

Take you time and enjoy it all. Don't be one of those who comes to the rim, looks, and says we made it to the big hole. Enjoy all the colors, birds, sunshine, clouds. This is a world heritage site and it is free for us to visit. Enjoy your time.

My husband decided to take a hike down allowing himself 21/2 hours. That section was rated easy and we can understand why so many people get into trouble. Going down isn't the problem but coming back is. With all the variables such as elevation, time, weather, fitness etc. things can quickly change. My husband loved the hike and appreciated the...

Well worth a visit! We walked down into the Canyon but it was hard work coming back up! Wouldn't like to do it when it's hot! Great views!

This is a nice one stop shopping type of place. We came had breakfast at the lodge then wandered around a bit checking out the views and art gallery. Then little gift shop shopping and ended up taking some really nice photos here. Stop if you can grab something to eat and stroll around.

For some reason this viewpoint is a little windy but it is a good view of the canyon as it extends arm like into the horizon. It 's a large wide platform so there is plenty of space. At the time we went it wasn't very crowded but apparently it does get crowded. This is an easy access viewpoint.
