This is definitely not a mountain biking trail! I am a resident of Grand Canyon and know for sure. Also use of Mtn bikes on canyon trails is illegal in the Park.

Awesome trail with very few people if any. Very steep at the top with lots of exposure to injury or death. Great views of the canyon and beautiful trail. I wouldn't bring kids or old people because of the narrow trail next to the cliffs. Bring three times as much water as you think you will need.

We only hiked a small portion of the Grandview on our was out from Hance Creek on the Tonto. The trail was very nice and well maintained.

We hiked down to the beginning of Horshoe Mesa and then went back. It was a very fun and extremely beautiful hike but also very difficult. The first mile or so is very steep and icy but offers some of the best views in the canyon. The trail is not very well traveled which I prefer. If you can handle how steep the trail is I would fully recommend it.

This was a great way to see the Grand Canyon. You get away from all of the people. The first .5-1 miles down is pretty steep. One of my favorite hikes!

This trail is beyond brilliant. We didn't see a soul until we were on Horseshoe Mesa, 3 people hiking, and then not another soul until we got back to the rim.

It's a great hike that's difficult and challenging, can't wait to go back!

Rugged and unmaintained. Perfect if you want to explore the canyon without the crowds. We hiked down an hour and then back out. Only saw 8 hikers total.

Nice trail with steep descent--not for those who have a problem with heights. Beautiful views the whole way to horseshoe mesa and back. When you get to the saddlepoint bridge, great views of two canyons. Be sure to take a look back at the awesome construction of the trail you passed over. We made it to the mesa and had to turn back as the monsoons were upon us. Caution: cobblestones are slippery when wet. What a workout!

Was an excellent hike, although had to turn back because the trial was very icy still at the top. Did not have crampons or Yaktracks to keep from slipping. Made it a mile down to "The Saddle" then turned back. Actually came back out faster that it took going down. That was amazing. Will try this again in a few weeks. Absolutely one of my favorite trails at the Grand Canyon

This is an excellent trail when you want to get away from the crowds. Hiking in on the Grandview and camping on Horseshoe Mesa makes for a exhilarating experience. Be sure to bring lots of water as it is a short hike from Horseshoe Mesa to the nearest water supply. From Horseshoe Mesa you can hike down and hook up with the Tonto trail.
