I did this clockwise from the trailhead. The best part is that if you just do out-and-back on See Canyon, you will not get any views along the rim. I didn’t follow this exact route, recommend that you when you get closer to the Drew Canyon trail descent, turn right to take the trails/roads that go toward the rim. There is a campground along this road and his has excellent views from the rim. I hike a bunch of miles and it was a moderate hike for me. For the average hiker, I would consider moderate to hard. See Canyon is hard to follow at times and semi-steep at the top. Also a bunch of turns through out that you need to navigate.
