We visited the Grand Canyon last weekend and my sister-in-law picked this "hike" for the family. It was amazing. It was more like a nice stroll, it is a 1 mile hike on an unpaved road and it takes you to a great overlook. No one else was there and it has a view to rival anything else we saw in the much more populated areas. I highly suggest taking this hike as well as driving along the Desert View Drive and stopping at those viewpoints as well. I believe that if you stayed in the village and missed out on these views, you missed out.
