Overview

Cape Royal provides a panorama up, down, and across the canyon. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is popular for both sunrise and sunset. The sweeping turn of the Colorado River at Unkar Delta is framed through the natural arch of Angels Window. Look for the Desert View Watchtower across the canyon on the South Rim. This popular viewpoint is accessible via a paved, level trail.
Features: Views
Family Friendly: A short, flat trail that leads to the beautiful views from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Dogs: No Dogs

Description

An easy walk on a flat, paved trail providing views of the canyon, Angels Window, and the Colorado River. Markers along the trail interpret the area's natural history. This trail begins at the southeast side of the Cape Royal parking area.
