Create an itinerary including Bright Angel Point
Towering above the Grand Canyon, is the national park's most popular viewpoint. You can get close to the viewpoint via car, but to be rewarded with its famous view, you'll need to hike the paved 0.4 km (0.25 mi) long trail along a ridge. At the end, you'll be able to see the vastness of the Grand Canyon, stretching so far below that even the Colorado River will be out of sight. Although the pathway is paved, it has a noticeable elevation change. Discover how to plan a Grand Canyon National Park trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • We tried this hike with a target of the 1.5 mile stop, but this was easy going down with excellent views and several long horn sheep. Great photos and a tough walk up.

  • This is an easy trail with outstanding views. A must do. Some stairs and steep inclines, but very doable.

  • There are 2 viewpoints close to the lodge. A must see view. Easy to hike to them, some steps. Cooler in the early morning or late afternoon.
