Some areas of snow/ice but no big deal. Very windy at times near the point. Perfect day, no crowds, fantastic views. Easy trail.

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.
