Very easy! If you do the whole 5.4 miles that is on All Trails, you will go from Manther Point to Bright Angel Trailhead, and back. It is paved the whole way, obviously snowy and icy right now. Perfect way to get some miles in, see some views, and not work too terribly hard!

Highly recommend for all; families and hikers. Great experience!!! Good choice if you don’t want to do a long hike or if weather changes your plans. This is perfect for a long walk, there are also shuttles that pick you up at various places. There are a dozen spots to take pictures of the Grand Canyon. Also, there are gift shops, a geology museum and bathrooms along the rim.


You also have the opportunity to learn some geology and walk the geologic time scale.

Right off the main road, making it a very busy place. Still a great and easy landmark to visit!

Fun for all ages and definitely a must for first timers! Visitor centers, information points, museums, souvenir shops and a paved trail is the perfect way to enjoy the canyon without actually hiking it!

We parked near the visitor center and walked but there’s shuttles everywhere so it’s easily accessible for everyone!

We did this on our last morning before leaving. It is an easy hike with great views. My only complaint is it is suuuuuper crowded which isn’t too surprising as it looks the most accessible for anyone and any skill level. But still, it was a nice way to view the canyon one last time.

Extremely easy trail, pretty flat, you can wear flip flops even (I did). The view is outstanding once you get there, you’ll definitely wanna bring your camera! But beware the vertigo

A nice easy hike and the kids had a lot of fun. We got to enjoy a very rare occasion of having lots of snow in the whole Sedona area. Since the kids were with us, we didn't get to climb up Bell Rock. But looking forward to coming back again and being able to climb it the next time.

Very busy over the Christmas break and somewhat challenging to access if you didn’t arrive early enough to park in the small parking lot. Very much enjoyed the views but did not enjoy the overcrowded viewpoint and trail.

Wonderful! A mini adventure up a rock and lots of happy helpful people.

One of those scenes that feel super fake. It's such a pretty sight!

As a note, please don't be one of those people that just leave your garbage in the parking lot. It looked so horrible in the parking lot.

Garden of the Gods was not very impressive after doing a lot of hikes in AZ and Utah

Short and slick! The mossy grotto had beautiful ice formations and the waterfall was frozen through...great photo ops!

Easy walk with a great view at every turn and deer along the path.

Pretty short (but slippery) winter hike. The waterfall was a frozen cone, which was interesting. Not worth a trip by itself, but a nice easy hike if you’re already in the area.

So beautiful. Go at sunset for amazing colors reflected on to the canyon walls. There are a TON of tourists but if you move out to either side you can have some time to yourself. A must see in page.

This trail creates the illusion that you can climb the rock. However, the trail unceremoniously ends about halfway up, leaving you confused and disappointed. There are some informal paths that emerge from there, but no clear path to the top. If you want to take a stroll and a few pics, this trail is for you. If you want to climb, head to Cathedral Rock.

A short little hike to see two arches for the price of one... it's unbelievable how big some of the arches are!

It's a sandy incline up to the top, but there is a convenient gazebo along the way, if needed. Be careful when you arrive as there are no barriers on the rim of the overlook. However the views of the winding Colorado River 1000 ft. below are breathtaking!

Well, it's not called Balanced Rock for nothing! Take this short hike around an amazing geological formation... it may not be with us much longer!

First time there and it was beautiful. Flat, paved walk. Great for the family. Lots of people!

Very easy hike along the rim of the grand canyon. We only went half way where there is the geology center and walked back. It was almost 4 miles round trip. If you don’t want to hike back you can catch free shuttle. There are many good areas to stop and take pictures. Make sure to bring good windbreaker if you are going in December.

Too many tourist.

Very short hike in. Visited in the off season, and went for the sunset. It was still very busy, so get there well in advance. Take a blanket so you can sit along the edge and hang out.
