what a beautiful area, plus the shops are all tax free as all money goes back in to the upkeep of the canyon . would love to have stayed longer.

I liked the easy level of the trail, the safety rails in all the right places, views on both sides WAY down, shade in a lot of places by rocks or trees, and hearing so many different accents and languages along the trail too.

Bright Angel Point takes you out on a little finger of rock straight into the canyon. The views are phenomenal.

A short walk from the North Rim lodge. You can see all the way across the canyon and even see the South Rim lodge if its a clear day.

This is one of the hikes at the North Rim of the GC. It is located near the Lodge and Visitor Center. You need to hike this short trail. The North Rim is great - high temperature for our two days in June was 72 degrees F.

Hiked for a mile or so down and then back up. Beautiful views! Make sure you carry plenty of water and start out early as the trail gets hotter as it goes down.

easy walk from parking area out to the rim. Nice walking path, but no barriers and very few guardrails, please keep an eye on the grandparents and hold on tight to the children...absolutely spectacular, but can be extremely dangerous. Be aware of where you are!

Paved trail with a little incline to get up on the point to a lookout platform great for a photo op. Sneak through the trees and get a photo on a rock hanging over the canyon!
