Very easy and level trail for all ages and levels. You start the trail at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center. You get some gorgeous views and photos. My husband and I did this in 5 hours, but we stopped frequently for pictures, restroom breaks and lunch. Wear sunscreen and bring a few bottles of water as the sun is strong and it gets very hot. Highly recommend!

A perfect get away from the city. Kid and elderly friendly!

Overall straight forward hike. Easy enough path to follow with elevation increases fairly often in a short distance. Great views 90% of the hike. A great intro to the Canyon.

Easy walk, some shaded areas to get a break from the heat. Good bird watching.

Wonderful views and I nice easy walk but to many people

Great hike, easy but felt like a good workout for me as a beginner

Nice easy first hike of the season with Girl Take a Hike! 40 plus Women!!!

Less of a hike, more of an enjoyable walk for the dog! Pick a route, any route. Not much of a trail in the beginning but super enjoyable to climb up the rocks.
5:30-6am is a great time to sit and watch the gorgeous sunrise before winter starts, we’ll be back for sure!!

I will be back to go down into the canyon! My sister and I completed a road trip from PA to CA and we stopped here on the way and completed the rim trail! It was amazing! I remember walking up to the edge of the canyon and my hands were shaking it was so mind blowing. I remember thinking ti myself how could something like this exist? It’s a bigger than you moment and super humbling. Absolutely subliminal in every way. Everyone needs to see the Grand Canyon as God intended.

This is an easy trail with some mild elevation to keep it interesting. Short enough to do even in summer weather in Phoenix. Make sure you bring plenty of water, as there isn't much for shade (though there is a water fountain at a pavilion along the way).

Biggest detraction is that it is very poorly marked. We had to rely on the map in this app to stay on trail and even then it was a challenge. On the positive, because the landscape is open desert, it's easy to see where you've been and where you're headed, so you're not likely to get lost.

Great trail for beginners or those who just want a quick outing. Despite being a holiday, it wasn't crowded so while we saw other people, there was no unintended company.

A short hike with two trail options, both are gorgeous

Easy hike around the south rim. We did ten miles on the rim hike. Some paved trail and some unpaved. Beautiful views and outlooks around the rim. If you do it all it can be tiring.
Jump on and off a shuttle if you want.

Really cool, fairly close-up view of the dwellings. It is $10.00 per person so depending on party size it might be more economical to just buy an annual National Parks Pass.

Double easy nice for bike.

Flat and very easy to see cliff dwellings.

nice trail, when you get back into trails forget you in the heart of the city.

This is awesome for kids. There was a lot of wild life, wide trails and great places to stop if needed. Could use a bit more parking. You forget that you're in the city. We will come again.

Amazing! This place is spectacular! We hiked and climbed and explored!!

What a lovely area. Saw lots of different birds and some bunnies. The ducks laughed a lot and the cicadas were buzzing loudly in some parts. Easy hike more of a walk but nice either way.

Love the Vistancia Discovery Trail, beautiful mature desert landscaping, wildlife, lots of picnic areas and an exercise area.

Start early and you will have most of the views to yourself!! Great, easy an be enjoyable hike!!

Sure.. the pictures that you can take are pretty, but on this extremely heavily trafficed tour it was impossible to walk in a decent way... so in my eyes not an actual trail. The guid was almost rude and didn't focus on anything but where and how to take the pictures. Didn't learn anything about the history of the canyon. My point of view.. a total waste of 180 dollar and my time.

It actually goes much further north

Nice nature walk if you have young children.

I wouldn't call this a hike, more of a nature walk. Really nice for families with young kids or small/old dogs that can't do anything too strenuous, or if you want something quick after work without having to drive out of town. This does get super crowded on the weekends, so keep that in mind.

Whether you like this trail depends on what you prefer. If you don't want to see a lot of people and prefer a more challenging hike nearby, review trails in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. It's not paved and a lot of people like biking here. But I like this trail because I have so many sentimental memories around this loop and in this park. Because it is easy to walk and easy to find and at a central location in the East Valley, I visit this trail annually. Bonus is the amphitheatre located on the north end of Big Butte Loop. I sometimes bring a yoga mat to this and practice on the pavement for a little while.

Silly Mtn is just across Hwy 60 from our RV Resort and every time we pass the parking lot we see many cars parked there. Finally my hiking group walked over from Canyon Vistas RV Resort and hiked the loop you see here, plus every "cross path" for a total of about 6 miles. The group marked it Easy to Moderate but there wasn't much in the easy category... but the scenery was a big surprise and I'm glad I did it!!!!!!!

Beautiful scenery but disappointed by the end of the trail. It doesn't really go anywhere and just peters out to nothing. Well worth doing though. Also very few other people out on this trail which is a definite bonus!

Tram or walking, this is one of the prettiest places in Southern AZ.
