Did this walk on a crystal clear day with plenty on time to enjoy it. Highly recommended by us as well as all the other walks on this end of the park!

I'm not sure if you can call this a trail as the walk to the point was paved. But the short walk was well worth it. The views were amazing. Prepare for the long drive from your lodging.

Definitely a must-do hike if you do the Cape Royal Drive. This is an easy hike and you are rewarded by wonderful views. The view of Angels Window is so cool.

Is an easy paved walk past Angels Window, a look at the southern most point of the canyon that looks over a geological wonder. You can see layers of ages pass before your eyes. It takes several miles to get to this end point but definitely worth it.

On our last day there, our family ate a picnic lunch at an area overlooking the canyon. Oddly enough, we were the ONLY people there. I think it was a Monday. There is an area off the trail where weddings are held. of course, it was deserted the day we were there.

This was a very enjoyable trail that offered great views the entire way. We also enjoyed experiencing the bird life in the vicinity even though we did not find any birds we had not seen before. There are a number of informative signs about the plant life as well, and they added to our visit.

Beautiful stop for lunch when you visit the Canyon. The view is wonderful. Easy Parking and a nice picnic area. It is a easy drive from the park's main road.

Beautiful ~40 minute drive from the north rim lodge - although you will want to make a day of it since there are so many beautiful stops along the way. I thought it was even more spectacular than the view from the lodge.

This is not really a hike, but a short walk on paved sidewalk to the best view if Grand Canyon. It is amazing. My teenage daughters went to another outcrop of rocks just east of the main viewing area. They love the pictures if them being alone (and safe) that shows the entire expanse of the canyon. These are our... More
