Very simple walk with not too much to see until you reach the canyon. Well worth it though, when the view opens up it was my favorite. Make sure you explore all the way to the point past the picnic area. We were the only people on the trail, enjoyed breakfast overlooking the canyon, and felt like we were on top of the world once we got to the edge of the point.

Amazing! Beat the crowds! A must!

Beautiful, quiet, short trail ending with astonishing view of the canyon rim. We had the whole place to ourselves. Definitely recommend!!!

We took the red shuttle for a majority of the in between, but walked from the visitor center to the first red route stop. Got a little tired and repetitive by the end of the route. Nice views but highly recommend hiking into the canyon for a even more spectacular and surreal experience.

Best memory there simply walk along the trail and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Beautiful view, enjoy it on the way down cuz you pay for it on the way up. We thought to turn around at the 3 mile, decided to turn at the 1.5 mile, best choice! So worth it!!

Awesome!!

Several spots to pull over and enjoy the view. If you want to avoid people you can pull over right on the side of the road along the way.

We had a great time making this loop and visiting the two National Monuments along the journey. We look walks in each of the National Monuments. The drive between the stops provided a real variety of ecosystems and some great views of the volcanic activity that created the area.

This is a short, easy trail that is well maintained and suitable for casual walkers. The trail itself is fairly routine, but prepare to be enchanted as you approach and enter the towering rock doorway into the caldera canyon. It is gorgeous and contains a highly varied backdrop of contrasting rocks, colors and vegetation. It is fairly tale perfect and feels like a secret oasis inside the canyon. All of this gives Red Mt a distinct character that is unlike any other hike in the area, and provides a highly enjoyable and memorable walk.

Definately a 10!

Walked this trail with my wife as beginners in hiking. The road to the parking "lot" is unpaved and signage for the road is really visable. The trail head is well identified with various signs along the way to verify you are on the right path even though the trail is clearly warn into the earth. There is a little incline walking into the volcano which can slow the pace down but coming out is a breeze. You must climb up a 6' maintained ladder to enter the volcano and do not worry as there are hand rails as well. The views inside are incredible and the views of the San Francisco Peak to the East is really nice on the trail.

Great trail - easy and definitely a great payoff at the end.

The BEST bang-for-your-buck hike! An easy walk that leads to panoramic views of the Grand Canyon. No crowds here! Once you get to the picnic benches, continue past them to a narrower trail that leads you out to the canyon. Also, there are bathrooms at the end of the trail.

Easy hike with nice views.

Amazing views! Great little spots to walk off near the trail and get some great views :)

Probably the best scenic hike for the short journey. Easy and beautiful.

Unreal abd surreal. So many just stop at the visitor center lookout and miss so much. Take the short .6 mile hike from the visitor center to the geology museum or take the free buses to each viewpoint if you don't have time. if you have time hike the rim or even venture into the canyon on Bright Angel Trail as far as you are comfortable. this is one place that you are robbing yourself if you don't get out and take the hikes

full of wonder!!

Beautiful views of Grand Canyon, but very crowded.

this is the best hidden gem in the park! an easy forested walk leads to a picnic area, and then if you follow the trail to the viewpoint beyond you are almost instantly rewarded with panoramic views. this is a solitary, quiet place that would be amazing at sunrise or sunset! don’t miss it!

One of the most underrated trails in the Flagstaff area. Only have seen one person the few times I have done it. Best views I have seen of northern Arizona throughout the hike

amazing!

We were late at Wupatki - no people there but perfect colors by last sun beams - very special moments with these ancient remains

TOTALLY WORTH IT. Being a dog mom it is so important that my “kids” come with me on every road trip. Most National Parks are not dog friendly which is a huge bummer. However, this trail is 12 frickin’ miles long and it’s views are truly breathtaking. It’s a paved trail which makes it easy to cover lots of ground in a short amount of time. We got up close and personal with at least 8 elk on our 7 mile hike. We were on the trail by 8:30 on a Tuesday and basically spent the whole first half of the hike by ourselves, which was such a peaceful vibe. To get to the trail we had to park in the campground across the street from the Wiki/Kuibab Point Trail. There you will come to a lookout and look for the only paved trail across from the mule stables. We drove 22 hrs from Kansas to see it and I don’t regret the drive at all.

One of my most favorite spots on the planet! Hands down! The colors of the canyon from the North Rim are deep and rich and touch my very soul. ❤️

Great but definitely full of people. For a more quiet trail go to the end near where the Lodge is.
