The drive out to Cape Royal takes about 30 minutes and is well worth it! Each corner of the road brings another beautiful vista. Be sure to take the short hike at the end of the road to the breathtaking Angel's Window!

It's a bit of a long drive through the woods to get the this trail and overlook but very well worth it. One of the most beautiful views of the Canyon on the north rim! It was raining when we left the main lodge area and by the time we got there was a huge rainbow! Just stunning! The trail... More

Short walk, well worth it. Good with young children for its easy, wide trail and interesting foliage and wild life. Good views.

Only a short drive from the lodge or cabins. It's a pretty flat easy walk on an asphalt trail. The signs alng the way describe the flora in the park as well as the rock formations.

A definite must see if on the North Rim. A wide variety of scenes, and a visit to Angels Window was one of the highlights of this visit.

When you turn off of the main road (67) leading to the North Rim you will be on the Cape Royal Road that leads you out onto the Walhalla Plateau. This road leads to vistas on the eastern part of the Grand Canyon. The end of the road leads you to two trails Cape Royal and Angels Window. Cape Royal... More

Loved this trail. I came here two morings for sunrise photos, and was only joined by one or two people. The trail is an easy walk and easy for all ages.

A paved rather easy trail leading to some wonderful views. Not too long and well worth the time. There was a long narrow trail that jutted out over the canyon and also a shorter one that went out not as far. The trail was lined with pine trees and lots of other trees and plants with markers explaining what they... More

Affording a great view from Grand Canyon's north rim, the Cape Royal trail is accessed by paved road about 53 miles from Jacob Lake park entrance. It's worth the drive. The vistas stretch about 270 degrees around and there are several easily-walked maintained trails out to vista points, including Angel's Arch. We didn't see trails down into the canyon from... More

15 miles from the turnoff to Inspirations Point the road ends in a parking area. About a half lime trail rewards you with a 270 degree view of the canyon. It is an easy trail and you will be rewarded with a 270 degree view of the canyon. Hint: you can view Inspiration and Royal the same day, but plan... More
