The views from here were amazing... It was so calming just to sit on the edge and take in the views as far as the eye can see.

Short, easy walk. Even with children, it is manageable. Best view is at the afternoon, when the setting sun lightens the canyon.

Been there many times and is always worth the time. This time we went off course and hiked to the East along the rim. Six shooters in the distance and Dutch Shoe.
