Beautiful view, enjoy it on the way down cuz you pay for it on the way up. We thought to turn around at the 3 mile, decided to turn at the 1.5 mile, best choice! So worth it!!

One of my most favorite spots on the planet! Hands down! The colors of the canyon from the North Rim are deep and rich and touch my very soul. ❤️

Easy trail with spectacular canyon views...best to hike on sunny late afternoons when lengthening shadows can make these views even more impressive.

Although an easy trail, its just so easy to lose your footing due to numerous beautiful views. Good thing it's a short hike.

Somewhat crowded this close to the visitor center. It was done as part of a larger backpacking trip.

Very easy trail that starts from the visitors center. Great view of the Canyon! A must see. Climb the rock at the end of the trail and get some great pano shots from up there!

Loved the trail to the point. There were a lot of terrified people on the trail so if you are afraid of heights be forewarned and prepared

Great and easily-accessible introduction to the Grand Canyon when at the North Rim Visitor center - stunning views, numerous side trails for short climbs and different vantage points.

Paved or well-graveled trail good for anyone. Views are breathtaking so be sure to still watch where you're walking since it's easy to become distracted.

At the visitor center for Kaibab National Forest off 89A, take a right turn and drive down the road toward the north rim. Forest is full of ponderosa pines and aspens and fir trees (higher elevations). It is 78 miles to the north rim gate. The road is flat and cut through many open vast grassy meadows - bordered by hills of trees. It was a very dry day with extreme fire potential. Only three days prior they had opened the road to Imperial Point - fires had been burning and were now contained. Some had been started by the park service, as burning helped control killing undergrowth, and spread during high winds, others were started by lightning. We drove to the North Rim visitor's center, and hiked the short distance along the ridge to Bright Angel point which is the end of Bright Angel Trail, which goes from one side of the canyon to the other. The area on the rim next to the lodge had neat, clean, cozy cabins (no a/c, as not needed). The walk to the point was along a ridge with both sides open at times, but with breathtaking views of the canyon. We heard the Roaring Springs below, way, way down - awesome overlook. Great viewpoint of the North Rim.
