Brink of Lower Falls

With North Rim road closed until October, whats the best way to get to Brink of Lower Falls trail? Is there a parking lot near Grand Loop and North Rim exit?

The closest parking would be the Upper Falls parking lot. It would be a bit of a walk back. It would be interesting to know whether they are allowing pedestrians through.

Check out the interactive map on the nps.gov/yell site for an idea of where things are.

The Brink of the Lower Falls was one of our favorite hikes 2 weeks ago, when we were there. It was no problem getting to it. We parked in the Upper Falls parking lot, walked down the trail back toward the bridge, across the bridge, and then down the other side to the Brink of Lower Falls. Much more impressive than the Upper Falls, and a beautiful view of the canyon. The switchbacks at the bottom were a little tough coming back, but this bunch of 50 somethings did just fine. We even saw a rainbow at the falls when we arrived, after 5 days of rain and snow!

Is that the trail from Upper Falls parking lot that goes over the top of Crystal Falls?

That sounds right. Unfortunately, I don't have any of my trail maps anymore to reference, so I'm going on memory.
