The trail is paved and lined with markers to show you how far you've traveled both in feet and years (an earth-time line if you will). Also has types of rocks formed around the time marked on the trail. Very fun for kids and educational too.

Trail. I went to mcdonalds today. Nglrn I kinda ordered a Big Mac. It was pretty good but it smelled like a fart. It might've been bc I farted on it but idk. I still ate it. Was kinda confused when the doc told me I had e coli. Like what even is that it has coal in it so I guess its someones name. I'm not gay tho I swear. I don't know who this "E. coli" guy is but he seems kinda chill doe. so back to mcdonalds. burbger wiz rly good.

Great way to experience the Grand Canyon. It is fairly flat and good for all ages and levels; including handicapped. Some breathtaking views with areas that jut out over the canyon.

An easy, paved trail that affords some beautiful views along the rim of the canyon. This would be simple to do with a dog, or a fairly small child.

Did this flat trail in freezing temps. Good thing we had boots with traction for icy spots. Expansive views of canyon.

Easy paved dog-friendly hike with spectacular views. Gorgeous morning light, not crowded at all b/w 6am & 930am in Sept. A bit chilly at dawn but warmed up nicely. The paved path is well maintained and both stroller and wheelchair accessible. Would’ve a fun multi-generational family hike.

The Rim Trail, also known as the Trail of Time, is a paved route stretching from the Yavapai Geological Museum to the Grand Canyon Village. It's a very easy stroll with very nice views of the canyon... I'd actually recommend taking a stroll like this over just busing from one viewpoint to the next. The Grand Canyon takes time to appreciate and a walk is a good way of taking that time, instead of just looking at it for a few minutes at a go. Along the way is signage talking about how the Grand Canyon formed and samples of rock from each of the layers within the canyon, so it's also an excellent outdoor learning opportunity.
