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!
Get away from the crowds. Amazing
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!
Awesome spot to watch the sunrise!
We were there in Autumn, which happens to be mating season for elk. We heard sounds like someone was playing a horn throughout our walk in and out there. Lo and behold, a large male bull appeared about 300 yards away when we realized who was making the "bugling" sound on our way out. We decided to pick up the pace and get out asap. However, the sunrise and view of the canyon is so worth it.
Great place for picnic lunch
what an awesome short trial. It starts with a very easy walk through the forest and gets you to an amazing point of view. open to anyone
