This "halfway" point to Cedar Ridge is a beautiful hike all in its self. If you want to get away from the crowd at the top of the rim ( it can be as busy as Disneyland) but if you don't want to go on a all day hike this is a good compromise. Always bring water when hiking any distance in the Grand Canyon.

Went on this hike a few years back with my wife and 8 year old. My son handled it well. As always take plenty of water and salty snacks.

This is a great hike with spectacular views. I completed this with my 10-year old and 7-year old -- there aren't many options for hikes down into the Grand Canyon that you can hope to complete with young kids, but this one is great, and Ooh Aah Point itself is breathtaking.

Easy to moderate trail about 1 mile below the GC South rim. Switchbacks heading down, all uphill going up.
