We hiked the trail down to see it and one of the things that made it unique is the frozen snow that was created from the mist from the falls at the edge. If you're not used to the altitude, take it easy walking up and down the trail. It's definitely worth it!

Lots of hiking, but worth the walking. You should go out of your way to see this area. Photo opportunities galore. The coloration of the surrounding walls of the canyon are outstanding. Have seen this area many times, but I never get tired of seeing it. Always looks different depending on the time of year you visit.

Great location to view the falls and listen. It's a beautiful view that you just can't get tired of. Each turn gives another angle and a different look.

The falls are beautiful, the location is quiet. But the views from Upper falls are better. But all these points on Grand Canyon are on northern and southern rim road whcih is not that long and can be easily covered.

We only looked at the falls from the parking area, but it is spectacular. I am so glad we have digital cameras these days, because we would not have had enough room in the car for all of the film rolls we used in the park!

There is something so soothing about the sound of rushing water. I enjoyed just standing there and listening.

By their nature, the lower falls are - lower. This means that you can easily see them from afar, and my favorite point is Lookout Point, along the North Rim drive. However, if you want to see them up close, you're going to have to hike up and down a lot of steps with about 500 feet of elevation difference.... More

This fall is amazing. There is a small walkway you have to take to see the falls from a small distance, at the river level. Go, do not miss this place.
