Overrated- the trail is rocky and steep, not the best recovery venture after a South Kaibab trek down. View was underwhelming, we wished we had taken the more scenic River Loop instead.

Did this hike after coming down South Kaibab and checking into my dorm at Phantom Ranch. It's a short pleasant hike, but not much to see until you reach the Phantom Overlook where there's rock bench to rest & relax.

Nice steep hike that doesn’t get all the traffic of some of the other trails but the view is really of Phantom Ranch. You can’t see much of the canyon or the river. The trail continues on but we stopped at the Overlook.
