The store is located in the Visitor Center and features books, potter, jewelry, and educational items pertaining to the Canyon.

Good hike and dog friendly.

Absolutely stunning views. First time hiker and this trail was the perfect challenge for me. We took the path off the trail to the left of the picnic table at the end and with a little careful rock climbing and advice from other hikers made it right up next to the light house rock itself! Truly unforgettable views. Took us 3 hours out and back and we took our time taking pictures and looking around. Old tennis shoes worked great for us. Highly recommend going early November - for us it was sunny and 65 degrees.

Nothing scenic. Just hiked it as I was leaving the canyon

Nice hike. Easy until you get to the end of the trail. Trail ends at 2.7 miles. You have to go beyond the trail end markers to reach the top which is totally worth it for the views from the lighthouse rock. Watch out for all the cactus as it's easy to slip on the trail and put your hand on one.

This one is for any age. Very pretty. Great flat trail to do a warm up run.

Great trail with beautiful views the entire path! Hiking boots are not needed on this trail as it is not rocky, most of the trail is dirt so a good pair of walking shoes will do just fine. When the trail ends, go left up the hill then stay to the right and it will lead right to the lighthouse structure. Bring bug spray!

This is s MUST hike trail!!! The views are amazing and they get even better the higher up you go!! It goes from the canyon floor to the rim plus extra trails all over the top with spectacular views. Would not recommend this hike for small children but if older kids are able to hike 6 miles this is the trail you want!!! (6 round trip including looking around a bit from the top .... because you will )

Loved this trail!!! When the trail “ends” go left up the mountain then right at the top, you will see a bench that has a fantastic view of the lighthouse!!! We hiked to the flat “table top” area on the light house and the view was amazing !!!! If we had stopped at the trail end I would have been disappointed .
