OUR EPIC 4 DAY GRAND CANYON TRIP – NORTH & SOUTH RIM
The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries which cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.
It all starts with the Colorado River
The North Rim, or “other side” of Grand Canyon is visited by only 10% of all Grand Canyon visitors. It’s the off the beaten path experience you are looking for as the South Rim gets way too overcrowded.
Visiting the North Rim Grand Canyon
Bright Angel Point
This is the main viewpoint of the North Rim Grand Canyon from Grand Canyon lodge. From the lodge the paved, 0.5 mile (0.8 km) round-trip trail leads out the spine of the ridge to Bright Angel Point.
Point Imperial is the highest point on the North Rim at 8,803 feet (2,683 meters), overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of Grand Canyon. Richness is added to these views with layers of red and black Precambrian rocks. It’s a different perspective to what you see at Bright Angel Point,
Cape Royal offers a panoramic view of across the canyon, which makes it popular for both sunrise and sunset. There is a paved, level trail here to the viewpoint where you can see the turn of the Colorado River at Unkar Delta, which is framed through the natural arch of Angels Window.
