This trail was super easy with a slight slope going down. The only thing that would make this trail difficult is if you are afraid of heights because of the narrowing of the paved trail and the outlook. Love it. There is also an elevation medallion on top of one of the stacks of rock.

The trail is an easy walk through the forest. Prettier than the Uncle Jim Trail with a few more viewpoints, but they are both similar. The trail itself is likely nicer in the summer with a few wildflowers, otherwise it is a form of getting exercise while getting rewarded at the end with a nice overlook. In November, it provides wonderful solitude. I had the trail and viewpoint to myself which I enjoyed. For more details and pics: https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/13/grand-canyons-north-rim/

Super easy, epic views! No dogs allowed. To those afraid of heights: this may test you.

Easy leading up to the rocks. The rocks at the end are awesome to climb on!

Worth the views for certain, not really a hike.

Short, but the end rock outcrop is amazing to climb on

Nice view, worth it if you are around.

Going down the canyon is by far the best. The thing is that the north rim is so far, it's hard to reach. That's a good start. Know your limits, but I'd suggest going deeper, it gets much better

If you are camping, just do that as an extra for sunset in the evening.

Nice place for sunset if you are camping there

There is so much nicer hikes! The distance is "long" for such a view. If you do it because you want the miles, I'm sure you can find a more rewarding hike. There is really mostly just the end that is nice. The trail is very easy. It's probably a nice place for sunrise

Kinda boring, it was the only trail that was dog friendly. Was able to see some beautiful views, wish we could have seen more though! It was freezing, raining and snowing. Definitely need to give the grand canyon another try!

Great hike, super easy and quick. A great view at the end and well worth it.

Rainy day road trip to the North Rim, weather was decent, so we decided to trek below the rim on the Kaibab trail, this was our first experience at the Grand Canyon. We easily made it to the Coconino Overlook and decided to go on to the Supai tunnel, really great views, it’s easy to understand why people get down too deep and have trouble getting back up! Love the quote we heard, “going down is optional, but coming back up is mandatory!“ The canyon keeps calling you to go deeper! We started to get a pretty steady rain but we were prepared, have rain gear and appreciate clothing. We had a snack break under an overhang near the tunnel, and headed back up. We saw many trail runners who were running the entire Kaibab trail South Rim to North Rim then back to the South Rim, all in a day! Made our climb out in the rain and hail seem pretty easy! I failed to do a recording, but took us about three hours or so at a leisurely pace.

Fairly easy trail except there were a few times where we had to guess which way was the actual trail. Just past the campground and general store there was a sign but the way it was pointed was very unclear. The trail that seemed the most logical was not. We actually followed it for about 5 minutes until we reached way too steep, dangerous and it was obvious it was not the trail. So be careful! Otherwise, an incredible trail with so much wildlife in the North Rim. We then hiked back to the visitor center using the Bridle Trail which was like a "cool down"

Amazing Views! Take your camera and water!

Very challenging hike. Agree with others that there was lots of mule dung, but it didn’t really bother myself or my husband. However, we both grew up near farms in the country. The sand was difficult to hike up. Every aspect of the trail was beautiful. We especially liked the trail past the bridge because it was cliff side hiking which made it even more fun. The spring was a trickle and the restrooms were closed which was unfortunate. We both loved all parts of this trail. Wish we could have went further and camped.

Great short hike located near the Lodge and Visitor Center on the North Rim. Amazing lookout at the end of the trail. Don't forget to climb atop the rocks at the end to see the Geographical Survey. Also there a few nice rock outcrops that you climb on that may be less crowded once people start showing up.

Loved it! I would suggest you get there the earlier the better. The mule poop and urine smell is throughout the trail. Sometimes it smells worse then other times. The tunnel was very beautiful. Not a ton of shade but there is some. I actually liked going up the canyon more than down, my knees did not like the down part. Make sure you pack water, salted food of some sort, bandana might have been nice to have to cover my mouth and nose from Poo smell and dust. Defiantly glad I did this hike. Very pretty views seen the whole hike. We started at 0930 and finished around 330 pm. We went to Supai Tunnel. I would have liked to start at 0600 if I could have. Make sure you wear sunblock too.

Started our hike at 8am and the parking lot was filled. Nice views the entire time. Plenty of spots to rest if the elevation gain/loss wears you out. There are water stations at the trailhead and tunnel. The overbearing smell of mule poop knocks this one down one star.

We actually ended up hiking past supai tunnel down to the bridge that you can see from the tunnel. Be warned, this is not an easy 3-4 miles! We gained nearly 3000 ft elevation in that short hike according to the park ranger. Get there early, we showed up at 0830 planning to hike even further and we were advised against it. The trail is rough going back up the switchbacks, especially around 10-3 when the sun is the strongest. My boyfriend and I are in are twenties and in decent shape, but we still took many breaks to avoid dehydration. This is a beautiful hike that is well worth the challenge!

Super randonnée faite avec mes enfants de six et sept ans. Nous sommes descendus jusqu'au pont. La remontée est longue mais sacs difficulté. Le sentier est en excellent état et il y a un point d'eau à mi-parcours (juste avant le tunnel), pratique pour faire le plein à l'aller comme au retour). On ne voit pas le grand Canyon mais un canyon parallèle. Des points de vue majestueux néanmoins. Je recommande vivement.

great views of the canyon

great views. leave early, the hike up is step and hot. mules dont go past the tunnel.

Nice point overlook at the end. Mostly shaded the entire dintance. Good for families with small children as there are no sharp dropoffs to worry about until the very end.
