Having the option to hike from point to point or shuttle between some was really nice. Walking the trail gave us very little interference with crowds so we could fully appreciate the beauty of the nature around us. The shuttles helped us to see more than we would have been able to without it. Great views 24/7 no matter where you’re at on the trail.

We did this trail. we had the place to ourselves from almost 2 hours, then as sunset got close about 4 others families joined us. I don't think you can find a better spot to watch the sun go down. it's absolutely breathtaking and definitely worth the easy, flat 1 mile walk out there

Great orientation trail to start the arrival to the canyon.

We did this for an easier walk the day after a more strenuous trial. The views are absolutely breathtaking. You walk a flat road trail with lots of trees up to the canyon, there are spots with tables and a bathroom, if you can bring lunch it would be a great place to eat. You’ll see an area you can continue to walk up, there is a big rock in the middle of you walk out there are the most incredible 365 degree views of the canyon we encountered only 2 or 3 people. A must do if you have some extra time and and to avoid lots of people. I wouldn’t bring kids with you out to the point as it is extremely dangerous but really cool and worth if it you trust yourself

Relaxing hike, accessible for all. You can decide how much you wish to do and easily turn around when you’re done. Beautiful views of the canyon, although very crowded. To avoid the crowds, just walk for about 15 minutes. It’ll thin out with distance.

Paved. VIEWS

Easy hike along the canyon's rim with markers letting you know the history of the canyon. Went in December so it was cold and not many people, more elk than people actually. Worth doing after watching the sunrise from Mather Point.

This trail is very easy and mostly flat. Bring at least 1L of water if you are walking this during the summer. There are refill points.

Incredible views. Easy paved pretty level walk. Fairly busy but many shops and stops to explore.

Absolutely amazing!! The hike is extremely simple & flat but then you get to the end it’s the most stunning view. The view from the picnic tables is great but nothing like walking out to the ledge. When my husband and I got to the end (10:15am) we were the only people there. Never have I been in such a quiet place. It was so quiet we heard a birds wings flapping as it flew past us. Slowly about ten people came out, which was nice cause we needed some photos. As we left we passed about 15 people. As with most hikes the earlier the better.

Love this trail! Easy enough for my mom with a bad knee to do, while still seeing beautiful views of the canyon!

This easy, paved train around the rim of the Grand Canyon was busy but not overwhelming. Though at times it feels like you’re fighting the crowds at Disneyland, the trail is so long, and the views are so omnipresent, that the beauty of the Canyon wins out.

The best view!

Beautiful!

I almost done want to leave a review to keep this spot secret. It is kinda difficult to find because there are no signs of any kind, and the map the give you at the entrance center is a joke. I literally waited for the “dots” to line up on the all trials app. The trail it’s self is more forested on both sides and there are NO Canyon views along the mile or so walk, HOWEVER, when you do reach the “end,” you rewarded with an amazing view and likely will able to enjoy it to yourself.

It was my favorite place we saw at the park, granted we only had a few hours, but I feel like it would be hard to beat!

A lot of reviews say go to the “end” but never really say what the end is.. the fire road/trail will open up a bit and there will be a small lookout view before some picnic tables, keep going past them about 50 yards or so, and head out along towards a point. If you don’t see a large standing rock near the edge, your in the wrong spot.

Very easy, flat, dog friendly trail. Though probably not wheelchair accessible, my father who uses an electric scooter was able to go on this trail, as the path is flat and hard dirt (a few rocks but easy to get around). At the end of the trail on the overlook of the canyon, there are many picnic tables and grills. Easy parking at the trailhead (I just google mapped the trail and it leads directly to the parking area).

Beautiful introduction to Grand Canyon

Loved this trail! Very high traffic but beyond gorgeous! Many lookouts, photo opportunities, benches, and different historical stops along the way. We were lucky enough to see some elk and a javalina walking this trail! Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring water.

We parked at visitors center by Mather Point. Took blue bus, and switched to red bus to Hermits Rest. That’s where we started walking the rim toward our car. I believe it was a good decision to go that way because for the most part you’ll be going downhill. First two miles we hiked on the very rim. That first two miles are not on the map. On the map you would see paved greenway, but there is hidden gem trail as well, right on the edge of the rim. I would consider these trail as Moderate. It is mostly few feet wide with the rock wall on the right and 3000 feet drop on the left. Don’t look down!! Not suitable for kids and dogs. We walked back 11.22 miles from Hermits Rest. First 6 miles are the most enjoyable and difficult, almost no people, and last 4-5 miles were paved and repetitive but still very nice. Highly recommend.

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!!!

Great, short hike with great views at the end!

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.
