Great little walk with virtually the whole path to ourselves. Easy down the road and back. Not marked from the road, but it's fairly easy to find. Park in the lot and head through gate. Once you reach the end of the road continue past the picnic tables and the ramada to the Shoshone Point overlook. Unique rock at the end marks where to go. Beautiful views and picturesque vistas. Great for kids!

This was by far my family's favorite hike at the GC. No crowds and great views. The hike itself is very easy, since you are walking on in car service path. The trailhead isn't marked, but don't let that stop you. It came up in Google Maps for me, and we parked in the small lot, walked around the blocked gate, and were on our way!

Excellent hike no one knows about at GC. Hike is very easy and pets are allowed on leash. note: GC rents out picnic pavilion for special events. Day hikers cannot access hike if there is an event taking place.
The view is beautiful and you may share it with one or two other hikers. Take note of the dangerous cliffs at the Point - there is no one around to assist you if you decide to be a daredevil.

This location is a secret gem and not many people, aka tourist, know about it. It's name should be changed to Serenity Point.

We had this place to ourselves for about 45 min. Can't beat the views. Built a tee pee. Had so much fun! Can't believe we found this place.

A beautiful, quiet, and easy hike to a spot with breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon. Since this is a little known unofficial official trail, it's very lightly trafficked. Highly recommend it!

Do not miss this hike. It's a very easy hike to the rim. Plus you are basically all alone and the view is spectacular. We went during spring break and we were completely by ourselves for 90% of the hike. It was the best hike of the day for us.

Worth every step! The view is amazing, go out to the end of the outcropping for maximum exposure. There were a few other people when we went, but not a crowd. It was nice to trade camera duties for family photos. May be the best view on the south rim.

In a park like the Grand Canyon, I have to give this hidden gem 5 stars simply for the lack of crowd. To clarify, my family of 4 had the trail and the over look to ourselves! The trail was short and flat enough that my daughter and wife(not seasoned hikers) had an enjoyable stroll through the snowy woods. I would recommend to those just wanting a little solitude without the usual effort required and certainly family friendly!
