“A peaceful stroll with incredible vantage points all along the way.”
— Nicholas Shannon
A short, flat trail that leads to the beautiful views from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
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.
An easy hike on a flat, paved trail providing views of the canyon, Angels Window, and the Colorado River. This trail begins at the southeast side of the Cape Royal
parking and picnic area and heads south along the paved path. The view from Cape Royal
is outstanding. On the return, stop by Angles Window for another great view. Markers along the trail interpret the area's natural history.
