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.

Great trail, hiked 5/25/18. Trail is a bit rocky and over grown in areas but the views are well worth the hike. Definitely a steep hike but short distance. Best to hike during the day because the trail and be hard to find at times.... hint: follow the poop for trail guidance.

A pretty hike through the forest to sweeping vistas. There are a couple campsites at Cape Final - would be great to see the sunset and sunrise this way.

This is a fun hike! The trail is fairly flat and easy, but not super well defined, so you get to do some climbing and ducking as you hike. Also, there is no obvious end to this hike, so we went probably an extra half mile before realizing we’d gone “too far.” We didn’t see any other hikers at all, so the isolation and immersion into nature on this trail was amazing. Great scenic views, obviously. :) I would love to hike this trail again after the snow melts and see some water in the springs.

Great views fun trail

This is a very easy walk out to a few viewpoints on the north rim. The road out to Cape Royal is a long drive from the North Rim Lodge area. But worth it. Although you are not allowed to, we spent the night out there and got up early to see the sunrise from the north rim. I have seen this incredible scene from the south rim a few times, and it is something to see regardless. One of the 7 natural wonders of our world!! Angels window holds a special meaning to me too. That's where I asked my girlfriend to marry me, on the 4th of July as we watched the sunrise from that spot!! I walked out to Angels Window with my girlfriend, and walked back with my fiance! Still together and we still love the outdoors

Short trail that drops down a small canyon passing a granary. It ends on a ledge where there is a spring. Not much water coming out of the spring this time of year

Did this trail with the Hatch crew. Kicked my butt but I loved all of the water and waterfalls along the way. This frog was happy in the desert. Big finish at deer creek falls, one of the best sights along the river.

Very cool hike! Saw nobody on the way. It starts off going through the burnt trees and landscape so that was cool to see and it gets greener as you trek on with the amazing canyon views to your right. We kept going past a fence always towards the right side which made it about a 7 mile hike total for us but the end view was so amazingly worth it. Bring water and snacks!

An easy to moderate out and back hike with excellent views at the end. Took us about two hours total walking at a reasonable pace and stopping at each of the view points to enjoy the sights. Parking lot not crowded at 10 am when we arrived but almost full when we returned at Noon.

I'll provide a review a little late - We hiked it in August 1992 while running the river in a dory with Grand Canyon Expeditions - better late than never. We hiked from the CO River up Tapeats Creek Trail to a small waterfall coming straight out of the rock. The water was pure and drinkable. We then crossed over to Deer Creek Trail and followed it across to the slot canyon that holds Deer Creek and feeds the falls. The hike across was very hot and dry. We followed the slot canyon down and then circumvented the falls in the climb down to the river. The Falls were beautiful and refreshing. The river guides had dropped us off for the hike so they could go meet their girlfriends/wives who had hiked down to the river at a more remote location - thus giving themselves some "private" time. This is my recollection 23 years later.

Great trail with a moderate incline on the way in and decline on the way out. At the top there are great views of the Grand Canyon available from several rock outcroppings. The first mile and a half is through a shaded forest area without much of a view, but the shade was nice. The last half mile was well worth the effort.

Named for the 26th president Teddy Roosevelt for his efforts preserving the Grand Canyon, Roosevelt Point offered us a short loop cut through some stands of dense brambles out to open areas and some great views of the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. It was evident fires had taken out many of the pines. A bench at the far edge of the loop is a great place to take in the views like Tritle Peak and the surrounding slopes. Not much of a hike, and views are much like you can get along most of the rim, but worth a stop.
