Used this on our descent to the river over a three-night backpack. Yes, it's a bit well used, but not like the freeway we call the Bright Angel Trail.
Access to the trail is limited; you'll need to take a GC bus or hitch a ride. I did see cars parked nearby, but I think that's frowned upon.
The views are great. No question. Most of it is steep, but there are a few flat-ish areas that are nice photo opportunities.
Finally, there's no water and little for amenities. I think I counted 2 pit toilets en route. But that's part of why it's less crowded, I think.
