If you are not going all the way to the river, Indian Garden is a good place to stop and picnic before returning to the rim. Take your time, carry water, and start all your hikes early in the morning during the summer.

Hiked through here while going Rim-Rim-Rim and another time while hiking the Bright Angel Trail to Plateau Point. It's a beautiful little oasis in the Grand Canyon. I always appreciate the American Flag that flies above the Ranger's quarters there.
