Less than a mile roundtrip on a paved pathway from the parking lot to the Point. Great views and scenery with a great view of Angels Window and the Colorado River far below! A must to visit this area of the Walhala Plateau!

Don't miss this beautiful drive to Cape Royal and the short trail to the point! Leave early enough for sunrise at the point, if possible. The spectacular views of mind-bending depths give you a whole new (or refreshed) perspective on life!

If leaving from the lodge give yourself 1/2 hour to travel the 17 miles. The road is somewhat narrow and winding but safe. We saw very few cars during the trip which seems normal for the North Rim. The paved trail at the end of...More
