Grandview Trail, Grand Canyon National Park

4.7
#7 of 12 in Trails in Grand Canyon National Park
One of the steepest within Grand Canyon National Park, Grandview Trail is also one of the most popular day hikes here. The descent can be grueling for many, but the payoff is a view of the canyon's mesas and a rare sense of true solitude. You can follow the trail down to a horseshoe-shaped mesa, where the Hopi once gathered minerals.
