Mather Campground Trail is great for walking, biking, and scooters. No views of the canyon, but you might see some elk roaming around.

Busy, busy, busy 7 million people a year visit the south rim. But it’s worth it. Rainy season ended two days after I arrived in the first week of September. Really awesome views and the rim trail is 18miles. Did a 3 a 5 and 10 mile hike. Visitor center is good but the park rangers are absolutely the best.

Walked along the South Rim trail in the Grand Canyon for some amazing scenic views and to watch the sun set.

Bike path around campground. Not real hike. Paved road, flat. I have no idea why it is rated as moderate

We camped here this past weekend. Great campground! Mather Campground Trail is great for walking, biking, and scooters. No views of the Canyon. But you might see some elk roaming around.

This is just a paved bike trail through the campgrounds, not the views pictured.

A good trail for an evening walk, to stretch the legs and take in the area. I like visiting with some of the campers

Good for bikes. Mostly used to get from point a to point b. Not a canyon view trail.
