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 an all day hike this is a good compromise. Always bring water when hiking any distance in the Grand Canyon.

Great hike but just add another half mile to your hike and go to Cedar Ridge. It's only 0.6 of a mile further down the trail but it's totally worth it. The trail is very well maintained. Do the trail early in the morning so you'll have some shade as you go back up. Bring plenty of water.

Different views from every side at Ooh Aah Point. Next time we plan to go on to Cedar Ridge (this is the halfway point). Switchbacks and loose rocks, so take your hiking shoes!

This is appropriately named and is also a great place to watch the sunrise. Take the 4:00 a.m. shuttle in get out dark and early. A gorgeous sunrise in the Grand Canyon is like nothing you've ever seen.

Awesome trail! Easy going down but be aware of the hike back up as it is very steep and not super forgiving. Take lots of breaks & take in the view of course!

Has to be the best hike here!

Beautiful trail. A little bit muddy and a little bit of ice near the top of the trail but that clears quickly. We were just beginning the hike when we saw a large rock fall from the top, bounce off a couple of the switchbacks and miss 2 hikers by no more than 10ft. Be careful out there!

Der Weg ist sehr zu empfehlen. Man kann schnell hiken. Er ist breit und ausgebaut. Viele wundervolle Aussichtspunkte um auszuruhen. Kein Eis ab 10 am.

Still some snow in shady areas, remember what goes down must come up!

Great views, but pretty tough on the way back up. Me and my 59 year old mom made it with lots of breaks.

Went Sunday morning feb 3. The start of the trail was still a little icy so be cautious when going down. Once into the sun it isn’t so bad. You are going down the entire time to the lookout point and then it’s a brutal hike back up, but worth it! We started around 9:45 am and finished around 11:30a
