A rewarding plateau-top day hike or backpack to a remote North Rim plateau. Hikers who pack enough water can easily wander around the plateau for days, visiting various rim overlooks and exploring hidden draws.

Great trail, hiked 5/25/18. Trail is a bit rocky and over grown in areas but the views are well worth the hike. Definitely a steep hike but short distance. Best to hike during the day because the trail and be hard to find at times.... hint: follow the poop for trail guidance.
