Short trail focused on breathtaking views. Not really a hike. Long drive to get here. Not much parking. Still worth it!

Very short hike to the edge. Not really a hike per se, but nice views looking into the canyon nonetheless.

This has the incredible view of Painted Wall in a short loop road pull off. The overlooks are all fenced. Do the hike to Exclamation point if you want an unfenced view from the north rim.

Very easy and worthwhile hike. Took about half an hour, which included several stops along the way to either take in the gorgeous views or let my two dogs get in their "necessary" sniffs. Look out points have guardrails, so I could rest easy knowing the puppy couldn't launch herself over the edge. Highly recommend if you've only got a few minutes

This is an easy and incredible loop trail! Very short, accessible to almost everyone. sections of the canyon overlook are lined with barriers. Great for families and kids and long as you keep an eye on them. Connected to the North Ridge Campground.

The views were breath taking and looking at the massive space really puts things into perspective. Life is too short not to live in the moment.

This is a must do hike if you find yourself on the North Rim of the Black Canyon. Very short, very easy. The trail is well established and maintained and the views are incredible! We went on Memorial Day and the usual National Park crowds were absolutely non-existent.

Super short hike, and you'll end up with similar views if you do the Exclamation Point trail. Worth stopping in and checking out the canyon.
