While there’s an impressive rock formation to see here, the trail doesn’t seem to be maintained. Though it’s probably not really a trail, and it’s very short, we didn’t finish it due to thick overgrowth.

Great views. The hike is pretty non existent. If shorts on it’s not very pleasant due to tall grass and other plants on the narrow trail. Views are worth it.

First to Review

Named for the 26th president Teddy Roosevelt for his efforts preserving the Grand Canyon, Roosevelt Point offered us a short loop cut through some stands of dense brambles out to open areas and some great views of the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. It was evident fires had taken out many of the pines. A bench at the far edge of the loop is a great place to take in the views like Tritle Peak and the surrounding slopes. Not much of a hike, and views are much like you can get along most of the rim, but worth a stop.
