We walked the uneven, paved path to Bright Angel Point twice – afternoon and early morning. The path is fine for anyone with average mobility. Not stroller appropriate, and hang on to your small children. The views are nice. While the north rim is not...More

Like all of the viewpoints they're busy even when we've visited in winter but if you've time take a walk along the rim trail and you've a chance to get away from the crowds.

We enjoyed this short walk out to a scenic view point over the North Rim. It only takes about 20 minutes and anyone can do it. There are some steep drop offs but it is still a very mild hike.

At Bright Angel point you can take a donkey and actually go down to the bottom of the canyon, not for the faint hearted. There is a gift shop with a fabulous viewing area with a pay point telescope for that extra bit of view!

We did an early morning 6 mile hike starting from here. Great views winding down the mountain. Really worth making it all the way down. Get an early start and avoid crowds on way back. Rest stops along the way and a well managed trail.
