The distance described includes the walking on Ken Patrick Trail to Uncle Jim Trail. The trail travels through a sparse forest with a lot of fallen trees. It isn't that pretty in the fall/winter though you are blessed with solitude. No mules or people. An overlook of the Grand Canyon all to yourself...that part is great (and you can see the North Kaibab Trail that descends into the canyon). I imagine in the summer, the welcome shade and a few wildflowers would make it more appealing, though then you'll be sharing the trail with the masses.
