We did this for an easier walk the day after a more strenuous trial. The views are absolutely breathtaking. You walk a flat road trail with lots of trees up to the canyon, there are spots with tables and a bathroom, if you can bring lunch it would be a great place to eat. You’ll see an area you can continue to walk up, there is a big rock in the middle of you walk out there are the most incredible 365 degree views of the canyon we encountered only 2 or 3 people. A must do if you have some extra time and and to avoid lots of people. I wouldn’t bring kids with you out to the point as it is extremely dangerous but really cool and worth if it you trust yourself

Paved. VIEWS

Incredible views. Easy paved pretty level walk. Fairly busy but many shops and stops to explore.

Absolutely amazing!! The hike is extremely simple & flat but then you get to the end it’s the most stunning view. The view from the picnic tables is great but nothing like walking out to the ledge. When my husband and I got to the end (10:15am) we were the only people there. Never have I been in such a quiet place. It was so quiet we heard a birds wings flapping as it flew past us. Slowly about ten people came out, which was nice cause we needed some photos. As we left we passed about 15 people. As with most hikes the earlier the better.

The best view!

I almost done want to leave a review to keep this spot secret. It is kinda difficult to find because there are no signs of any kind, and the map the give you at the entrance center is a joke. I literally waited for the “dots” to line up on the all trials app. The trail it’s self is more forested on both sides and there are NO Canyon views along the mile or so walk, HOWEVER, when you do reach the “end,” you rewarded with an amazing view and likely will able to enjoy it to yourself.

It was my favorite place we saw at the park, granted we only had a few hours, but I feel like it would be hard to beat!

A lot of reviews say go to the “end” but never really say what the end is.. the fire road/trail will open up a bit and there will be a small lookout view before some picnic tables, keep going past them about 50 yards or so, and head out along towards a point. If you don’t see a large standing rock near the edge, your in the wrong spot.

Very easy, flat, dog friendly trail. Though probably not wheelchair accessible, my father who uses an electric scooter was able to go on this trail, as the path is flat and hard dirt (a few rocks but easy to get around). At the end of the trail on the overlook of the canyon, there are many picnic tables and grills. Easy parking at the trailhead (I just google mapped the trail and it leads directly to the parking area).

Beautiful introduction to Grand Canyon

2 months ago

We parked at visitors center by Mather Point. Took blue bus, and switched to red bus to Hermits Rest. That’s where we started walking the rim toward our car. I believe it was a good decision to go that way because for the most part you’ll be going downhill. First two miles we hiked on the very rim. That first two miles are not on the map. On the map you would see paved greenway, but there is hidden gem trail as well, right on the edge of the rim. I would consider these trail as Moderate. It is mostly few feet wide with the rock wall on the right and 3000 feet drop on the left. Don’t look down!! Not suitable for kids and dogs. We walked back 11.22 miles from Hermits Rest. First 6 miles are the most enjoyable and difficult, almost no people, and last 4-5 miles were paved and repetitive but still very nice. Highly recommend.

Very simple walk with not too much to see until you reach the canyon. Well worth it though, when the view opens up it was my favorite. Make sure you explore all the way to the point past the picnic area. We were the only people on the trail, enjoyed breakfast overlooking the canyon, and felt like we were on top of the world once we got to the edge of the point.

Amazing! Beat the crowds! A must!

Beautiful, quiet, short trail ending with astonishing view of the canyon rim. We had the whole place to ourselves. Definitely recommend!!!

Great, short hike with great views at the end!

We took the red shuttle for a majority of the in between, but walked from the visitor center to the first red route stop. Got a little tired and repetitive by the end of the route. Nice views but highly recommend hiking into the canyon for a even more spectacular and surreal experience.

Awesome!!

Definately a 10!

The BEST bang-for-your-buck hike! An easy walk that leads to panoramic views of the Grand Canyon. No crowds here! Once you get to the picnic benches, continue past them to a narrower trail that leads you out to the canyon. Also, there are bathrooms at the end of the trail.

Unreal abd surreal. So many just stop at the visitor center lookout and miss so much. Take the short .6 mile hike from the visitor center to the geology museum or take the free buses to each viewpoint if you don't have time. if you have time hike the rim or even venture into the canyon on Bright Angel Trail as far as you are comfortable. this is one place that you are robbing yourself if you don't get out and take the hikes

this is the best hidden gem in the park! an easy forested walk leads to a picnic area, and then if you follow the trail to the viewpoint beyond you are almost instantly rewarded with panoramic views. this is a solitary, quiet place that would be amazing at sunrise or sunset! don’t miss it!

Pictures do not do it justice

In my opinion, one of the best views you can get without a strenuous hike. Pleasant and quiet. My wife and I went mid-morning and only saw a handful of others. Trail was very easy and saw lots of birds while under the canopy. Make sure you walk past the picnic benches to the point. You won't be disappointed.

Easy walk from the road to the actual point, make sure that you also hike out to the standing stone to the left of the picnic area. If you have time, take the opportunity to follow the trail along the rim towards the village. There is a small trail there and you get some great views of Shoshone Point.

Really stunning, nothing like it. Took the bus to the end and walked the whole length back to the main visitor area. It's paved and easy elevation. Only difficulty is the occasional strong wind gust. Plenty of stopping to ooo and aaaawe.

Great views by ourselves. We saw more elk than we saw people and it was very easy stroll.

Absolutely breathtaking! It was my first time to the Grand Canyon and, as much as I loved the rim trail, it made me hungry for more! I wanted to get down in the Canyon and hike so bad! Will definitely be back one day when I have a little more experience under my belt to do just that!
