Grandview Trail, Grand Canyon National Park

4.6
#7 of 16 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.

  • We are around half past 12 embarked on this hike in the assumption that this was well to do and but 5 hours (round trip). If you start at the tour goes down the very style and soon you notice vibrating legs. My friend and I play soccer both fantatiek so we are best fit. Once at the bottom come join hors shoe where you only the mountain see, there is no water or something similar to the pictures that are known of the horse shoe. Well there is a short path to Cotton Creek here is fantastic views into the Canyon. So far is the route to do good and very nice on the road. This is the most beautiful route that we did but also the toughest. Because the way back is quite violently. We have a total of 5 hours and came all the way dried out above. We had 3 liters of water at what really was too little, so having a better preparation from our tour was also easier.
