Bright Angel Point, Grand Canyon National Park

#4 of 15 in Trails in Grand Canyon National Park
Historic Walking Area · Hiking Trail
Towering above the Grand Canyon, is the national park's most popular viewpoint. You can get close to the viewpoint via car, but to be rewarded with its famous view, you'll need to hike the paved 0.4 km (0.25 mi) long trail along a ridge. At the end, you'll be able to see the vastness of the Grand Canyon, stretching so far below that even the Colorado River will be out of sight. Although the pathway is paved, it has a noticeable elevation change. Discover how to plan a Grand Canyon National Park trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • This is a short trail near the Grand Canyon lodge. Beautiful views and easy for older people. Definitely a must see on the North Rim.  more »
  • Easy and fairly short hike from the lodge. Kid friendly. Great views from the North Rim. Easy to go out at different times during the day as the sun and clouds will change the view.  more »
