excellent photo op near the parking lot so you have a choice of stopping for a quick photo only or taking a bit of a hike. Also a good place to sit fro a bit and just take in the sight. It's pretty amazing.

This trail was very convenient to the lodge, so it was one of the first trails we walked. The views were terrific!

This was a tough hike I thought it was much closer but well worth the view when you get there. A little scary on some of the thin walks with no rails -

This is a well mark trail. It does take a while to walk on. One needs to remember that the air is thin. If you have problem with breathing need to remember this. Plus take water and drink a lot. The view s are awesome.

Easy trail with beautiful views unless you are afraid of heights. Trail is well maintained, but, be aware that it has steep dropoffs on both sides.

It can get crowded since it is so easy and so close to the lodge. Go out before sunrise for a spectacular sight.

A good stop point to buy souvenirs and use the restroom amenities and get a bite to eat and get out of the heat after viewing the Grand Canyon.

This area is one of the highlights where a lot of people go. The views are wonderful... But in the summer, there is a lot of foot traffic. There are places to sit and rest - plenty of squirrels around to feed also. (you are not supposed to do that though). Enjoy your day here!!

We did the short walk to Bright angel point before exploring the rest of the park. Seems scary at first but if you keep your eyes on the path and not the canyon, it's not too bad. Bright Angel point gives a great view of the canyon, and the small undulations make for a nice change in terrain and can... More
