Grandview Trail, Grand Canyon National Park

4.7
#7 of 9 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.

  • If you are a fit, prepared and experienced hiker, you'll groove on Grandview. (Called "Horseshoe Mesa" in some hiking guides.) No comparison to Bright Angel: the super steep initial descent and tricky...  more »
  • We play all day in the Grand Canyon National Park, afternoon drive here now when it comes to the Sun. We walked along the trail to walk into the Canyon and saw a lot of people here have chosen to walk, we're running out of time, just looking for a good place to watch the sunset. Sunset is very beautiful. Beautiful day here

Where to stay in Grand Canyon National Park

You'll find plenty of options if you want to stay inside Grand Canyon National Park. Most campgrounds and lodges sit around the South Rim area, and they tend to fill up quickly for summer visits, so book as far in advance as possible. The price range for lodge accommodations varies greatly, so there's something for nearly every budget. The less-visited North Rim features one lodge. For those who hike to the bottom of the canyon, dormitories and cabins are available at Phantom Ranch. If you can't secure a place in the park or find something there to your liking, the small village near the south entrance offers inns and economy motels. You’ll have the convenience of nearby restaurants if you stay there.
