Crowded, but easy walking.

Great views (obviously) and you'll hear more unfamiliar languages than you might expect. Great for kids or folks who have trouble hiking.

After our hike to Indian Gardens we wanted to hike the rim some more. Very nice views and relaxing trail along the south rim. Must do.

Just beyond the GC Visitor Center is this long paved walkway that is flat, wide and easily accessible to all. The area has picnic tables and benches and back by the visitor center are bathrooms, gift shop, and rangers to talk to about the park. If this is your 1st trip to GCNP and this is your 1st sight you... More

Easy paved trail with excellent views of the Canyon. Well maintained and signposted. A great way to experience the South Rim. We walked from the centre our to Hopi Point.

The views along the rim were magnificent! We stopped at Mohave Point due to weather. There were a couple of benches and tables along the route to stop and rest or eat which was nice to see.

My sister and I walked the rim from point to point and found the most amazing photo opportunities. The views vary a little from area to area, the quality is all equally exceptional. We seen several animals including elk along the way and really enjoyed watching the birds fly around the canyon. Kind of wished we could join them in... More
