A lot people do the canyon on an organised coach trip while staying in Vegas, which will show you the popular points, however for a more immersive experience, and without hiking into the canyon, it is worth walking some of the rim trail. Most of it is surfaced and easy walking, some of it isn't surfaced, and you need to... More

I was a bit nervous traveling with a pregnant wife to the Grand Canyon. I knew that vertical hiking was out of the question and since it was my first time I was hesitant whether the Rim Trail would provide us with a worthwhile experience. Suffice to say, it did! The Rim Trail is phenomenal. The views are breathtaking and... More

This is absolutely a must!! Walking along the rim of the most popular of the 7 world wonders is amazing. Sadly pictures will never do justice for the life experience. Loved every overlook and the opportunities to meander at my own pace. Don't miss this!!

We walked a few portions of the Rim Trail. While there were ups and downs, at no time was the hiking particularly difficult (for a couple of not in great shape seniors) particularly from the trailhead to Hopi Point. Each point offers different opportunities to see Canyon features including the river and rapids, condor caves, trails leading down into the... More

We didn't want to leave this place. Majestic, awe inspiring, beautiful, even dangerous if you are too close to the edge. Be very careful if you have young kids, never let go of their hands. Earth's gift to humanity.

Totally amazing. A nice level hike from the visitor's center to the museum. Each view of the canyon was a bit different. Take the hour and do it. Not a hard hike, but will take some time.

This is a well maintained trail with excellent views of the canyon. The national park service has improved the park greatly and taken measures to persuade the raccoons and elk from entering the trail area. You may across some deer near the park headquarters and elk towards Hermits Rest. If you can handle it I recommend renting bicycles and heading... More

We walked the rim of the rim over two days while visiting the Grand Canyon. The reason it took two days was that we kept stopping to absorb, admire and photograph the stunning views.

Almost too crowded during peak times. Lots of elk on the trail too. Lots of view points, and a nice walk. Easy to get off the trail and on to a bus at any time.

On our coach-tour visit we enjoyed the opportunity to walk some 3km along the trail between drop-off and pick-up points, which took about 2 hours. Easy walking, all fairly even on good surfaces. Views indescribable. A unique experience.
