Easy walking trail with only a few steps. Great views along the length of the trail and a nice little spot to sit and rest at the end. Worth the walk if you’re driving by.

Gorgeous views, especially in late afternoon. From the "Grandma Goes Hiking" files: There are many, many stone stairs ranging from about 6-12 inches high each that must be scaled both up and down which made this hike very challenging for me with my knee replacements. The trail took me about 2 hours and was 2.6 miles from the parking lot to the end of the trail, but was well worth it.

Beautiful views of three mountain ranges and the stunning canyon floors! Easy walk, option to scramble at the viewpoint. Overcast day— perfection!

Pretty great view but a bit busier than some of the other trails. I liked going at the end of the day. It was very beautiful with the sun going down.

Beautiful views, walls the rim but not scary and is a pretty flat trail so good for families!

No railing! Views for hundreds of miles into the Needles. At the end you can get a glimpse of the Colorado R. Keep an eye out for lizards and burnt scars on trees. Keep footing on the rock trail, biodiversity can be damaged if stepped on.

Beautiful views throughout the entire hike. More of a leisurely walk with the occasional elevation gain - very easy. Lots of spots to climb up and see the views! Ends with an amazing view of the island in the sky.

Moderate incline on the way to a beautiful lookout. There are consistently spots where you must hoist yourself 8-12 inches up tall stairs or rocks, so it might be difficult if you have joint issues. Ending had an awesome lookout where we ate a snack and spent some time enjoying the view.
