Bright Angel Point, Grand Canyon National Park

(4.9/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice walk where you have the feeling at the end in the middle of the canyon. If you are in the early morning you have the trail almost for yourself only and that makes the whole thing even more impressive. A must do!
