We started this trail at Artists Point as the early part of the trail is closed for reconstruction. The first mile is along the Grand Canyon and has to be seen to believe. Incredibly beautiful , if somewhat scary if you have a problem with heights. Then it veers off right via Clear Lake though mostly wooded areas which had a lot of fallen trees and muddy areas due to recent heavy rainfall to be negotiated. Hiking poles a big help. Our trip there & back totalled 8km , enjoyable but the first mile makes the trail.
