Nice trail with Many views of the canyon

Nice trail. With the shuttle you can decide how far you want to hike without having to backtrack which is very nice.

There are few locations in the world that offers such majestic, awr-inspiring panoramas. The trail is easy to navigate and safe.

The rim trail is easy to walk, and the views are wonderful! Not for those afraid of heights, however, as the trail is sometimes perilously close to the edge with no guardrails or fences.

An absolute must do when visiting GCNP. This trail is an easy stroll and gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the GCNP and all it's beauty! We were so busy at the different View Points taking pics we forgot to stop and "smell the roses". Took the Rim Trail all the way to Bright Angel Trail and then... More

The South Rim trail is a must see, must do. The free park shuttle has many stops and one can get off and walk the rim trail at most locations. The "Rim Trail" consists of many trails that connect each shuttle stop. So, if you get tired you can catch the shuttle at the next stop. I did a 1.5... More

A hike you won't soon forget. Easy to moderate and doable for a family with children; for younger children you will have to keep a close watch.

There are 4 main trails at the South Rim Grand Canyon. This is the most popular area of the park. 2 of the trails go down into the canyon, but it is an overnight trip to get to the river and back. The high elevation and steep climb is difficult so be sure you don't attempt them if your not... More

The rim is not for the light headed or those suffering fro vertigo due to the fact that there is no safety fence between you and a shear drop of a thousand odd meters straight down 300 mm from where you feet are. Just the same its a bucket list walk that you will never forget and will bring you... More

You can conveniently maximize your tour of the rim by using the shuttles and hiking some of the stretches between the stops. A great and convenient combination to stretch distances covered!
