Great view

One of those great views, you'll see it on your way along the Rim Trail. Check around, take photos. It's right by the village. You can get there by bus - blue line

This point is an excellent lookout and a good way to get an overview of the Bright Angle Trail. It is on the Rim trail so mostly a flat easy hike from the Bright Angel Lodge. To get an excellent view of the Bright Angel trail go to the Trail Observation Point. This is the first stop on the Red... More

Another of the many awesome viewing points as you explore the Grand Canyon. It is a mesmerising place, utterly enchanting. It takes the breath away at every turn. Bright Angel Point is well worth the trek to. It's not difficult and to say the views are worth it is a spectacular understatement. Spectacular is the word.

Loved the camaraderie on this trail. Even if you are nervous of a heights, it is an absolute must do to complete a short hike. I marvelled at the pathway which had been built over time and the mules were astounding as they balanced at the edge of the trail :) The geology and wildlife in this area are so... More
