This is definitely not a mountain biking trail! I am a resident of Grand Canyon and know for sure. Also use of Mtn bikes on canyon trails is illegal in the Park.

not for beginners. we went down to the horseshoe. very technical areas. steep. because of how steep it is remember to give the hiker coming up the right of way. beautiful view of the canyon and Co river in the distance. bring lots of water 3 L a person and good footwear is a must. bathrooms available at trailhead.

Best trail down to the Tonto Platform. Visit Pete's Cabin and old mine. See the Cavern, if you know where. Great Views of Vishnu Temple and Wotons Throne. Can connect to Tanner Rapids trail.

Awesome trail with very few people if any. Very steep at the top with lots of exposure to injury or death. Great views of the canyon and beautiful trail. I wouldn't bring kids or old people because of the narrow trail next to the cliffs. Bring three times as much water as you think you will need.

We hiked down to the beginning of Horshoe Mesa and then went back. It was a very fun and extremely beautiful hike but also very difficult. The first mile or so is very steep and icy but offers some of the best views in the canyon. The trail is not very well traveled which I prefer. If you can handle how steep the trail is I would fully recommend it.

This was a great way to see the Grand Canyon. You get away from all of the people. The first .5-1 miles down is pretty steep. One of my favorite hikes!

This trail is beyond brilliant. We didn't see a soul until we were on Horseshoe Mesa, 3 people hiking, and then not another soul until we got back to the rim.

It's a great hike that's difficult and challenging, can't wait to go back!
