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.

Amazing! Not a lot of people when we went. Parking was a mess but the shuttle service is great for getting back and forth. We managed to snag a great “seat” for the sunset, however we had to make a mad dash back to the shuttle since the temperature dropped quickly after the sunset. I cried about 3 times, it was just breathtaking.

Good views. Too many people.

Randonnée facile et accessible pour tous. Offre de superbes vues en hauteur tout au long du chemin. La piste est en asphalte et c'était glacé à quelques endroits, mais bien cool à faire !

Truly grand view!! Very easy trail and easy to find. However, it is VERY crowded (it's the Grand Canyon, what do you expect) and that was on a cold, off-season day.

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.
