Unbelievable. You have to stroll/hike/run out there and take in the fabulous views. Mornings are great, with hundreds of your friends. Evenings are great, with very few of your friends. Anytime is great at this unbelievable beautiful viewpoint.

...as are most of the 'points', but the Trail is close by and really worth a little wander down, just to get away from the crowds on the Point.

Bright Angel Point is a short path to an amazing view. There are one or two spots where if you have a fear of heights you may be challenged, but it is worth it. There are many spots to stop and sit if necessary. If you have a half hour, this is your trail.

This is the overlook on the North Rim down from the lodge. It's about a 10 minute walk to the overlook but note that there are some stiff ups and downs. Also, this walkway connects to the Transept trail. Great spot for looking south into the gut of the Canyon. Different hours show different lighting effects. So stick around or... More

This was a great short trail to and awesome view point. There were several locations where the trail was wedged between a rock face and the edge. My wife has a fear of heights and she managed it, but many areas of the trail made her very uncomfortable.

Bright Angel Point is easy to access for most anyone and is near the Lodge. Once standing on the edge, you feel like you are at the edge of the world, overlooking an incredible array of color, tones, rock formations and an unbelievable amount of geological history. Take your time and soak it all in. There's only one Grand Canyon!

Glad I took my trekking pole to use on this sometimes steep hike. Go early morning before it gets too hot and crowded. Absolutely gorgeous views!! Mother Nature at her best!

A hort, steep paved trail starting at the east end of the north Rim lodge grounds and leading out to a viewing platform at Bright angel point. The trail follows a narrow ridge with steep drop offs on both sides and crosses a concrete bridge over a gap in the ridge. The view of the side canyons is incredible especially... More

OK-so I AM old and am not real good with heights. I did it anyway! Just took my time, stopped frequently, drank lots of water, and kept my eyes on middle ground when going nears drop-offs. Well worth it. My wife wouldn't go due to a fear of heights but she did do the transept trail like a real trooper.... More

Family of 5 -- kids 9,11,13. Challenging, fun, scary, life changing! The views are unreal, the workout was great. You can go as far as you want. This can be a 20 minute there and back, or you can set out for days! No chance of getting lost. The only thing is that there are no guard rails and no... More
