A must see if on the North Rim

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

If you visit in June, this is an excellent walk to do to take in some beautiful cacti blooms. Saw some red, yellow and pink cacti flowers, it was beautiful! Of course, the main attraction on this walk is the end, where you are rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of the Grand Canyon. The scope and sheer size of... More

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.
