It's a very short trail, easy to do, with exceptional views. It will be the busiest part of the North Rim, but that's still not busy if you're used to the vistas from the South Rim.

Walk out and look! Take your time and drink in the vista. I'm not certain if it was permitted, but we climbed up on top of the point. WHAT a VIEW! But don't do it if you get vertigo!

This place is right near the Bright Angel Lodge. It's one of the best views of the Canyon. There is also access to Bright Angel Trail right near there as well. A great place for all.

This is a short walk from the North Rim Lodge. You get a slightly different perspective view from here, and especially to the east. You can see the North Kaibab trail below, which actually starts a ways back up the highway from the lodge.

The short trail of eight hundred meters is steep in part of the way but the lovely view to the canyon is worth it.
