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

Perfect stroll along the Canyon rim with my dog. She enjoyed all the attention she received along the way and I was able to appreciate the views.

If you start very early parking is easy and the trail is perfect if you’re not able to take on the steep trails. Lots to learn along the way from signage.

Easy “hike” for great views of the Canyon. Not very crowded and well maintained.

Great trail and kids friendly !

The first major viewpoint when coming into the park from the east. Worth climbing the tower to the viewing area. I've stopped here a few times when in the park. As with all the viewpoints, the canyon takes on a little different look at each. You can actually see the watchtower from the river when doing a rafting trip. Pretty awesome

Easy hike on paved path, between Bright Angel Trailhead and East of visitor center. As a hike, there is little challenge, but the views alone make this a 4-star hike. Amazing! Not only is the hike extremely accesible, but there are May stops along the way, many with access to the trolley that moves people around the park, and some with limited food and drink options. Glad that this 12+ mile end-to-end trail can be taken in almost any sub-length, as it allows people to enjoy the views from the South Rim regardless their ability, their energy level, or the time that they have. Not to be missed.

For those wanting a little less crowds and more unlaced trail, but still wanting access to the trolleys, try the West Rim Trail that lies West of Bright Angel Trailhead. We only went to the Mohave stop and hiked back to Powell, but it was spectacular viewing of the Grand Canyon with far fewer hikers. You will want to hold hands of little ones as there are no guard rails and some narrow sections quite close to the edge of the cliff. Still, with focus and a firm handhold, it can be enjoyable for children and parents alike.

This was a nice afternoon walk after we first arrived at the Grand Canyon. It is a very good view of the canyon with many areas to stop and take pictures. Shuttle stops are frequent along the trail if you get tired and want to head back to the village. It is a very popular trail with many hikers, both young and old. This is an easy hike with few steep areas and stairs. Parking nearby is usually full so you might need to take the shuttle. Good for beginning hikers and those not ready for an unsaved trail. Beautiful views of the canyon.

Beautiful view of the Grand Canyon! I wished I could stay longer. There were so many people on this area, though. There are steep paths and no railing in some areas. Will come back again and hike the trails.
