Bright Angel Point has a great mix of views and attractions. There is a small walkway grazing a rim of the canyon; there is also a restaurant in this area which serves great food and is a welcoming sight for hungry hikers (the view from here is amazing!). Visit as many "Points" as you can!

Then again, you will have great views wherever you stand on the rim of the canyon. It really is an amazing site and one is awe struck by it's size.

This would have been fantastic if we got a good sunset. Unfortunately nature di dnot oblige but its a great spot to watch day turn to night. Milky Way was very clear.

A beautiful spot in which to view the canyon. It's in the village so there are a few shops and a couple of restaurants to visit. The vistas are amazing. There's a water station here to refill bottles, benches to sit for a rest, hotels, inns, lodges, cabins, mule barns, train station. A must visit spot.

It's a good place to start your trip. I don't know how is it in summertime, but october was hot during the day and crowded. It was hard to deal with people who want you out when taking your pictures. You need tons of patience specially with young and not educated people.

The views are simply astonishing, of course. The trail is easy, although there are not a lot of railings, so be careful! If you are afraid of heights, just forget it. Stay on the back deck of the Lodge! Take it slow walking back, as it is slightly uphill, and if you have not yet acclimated to the elevation, you... More

There is nothing to dislike. It is accessible to all types of travellers. The paths are well maintained and you can stop and view the canyon at all points along the path.

This is a wonderful paved walk close to the lodge with spectacular views. The first time I walked it was in the late afternoon after we checked in and it was very crowded. The path is very narrow and can be a bit scary for those fearful of heights. Try walking at sunrise and you can enjoy the tranquility of... More

Take a bottle of water, a camera, be prepared to be out of breadth because of the high altitude and don't rush and enjoy each and every view you see walking to Bright Angel Point. The path is easy to walk on with just a few inclines, so okay for most people.
