A trail ca. 100-200 yds long leads from official parking lot to fenced overlook, with two picnic tables on the way. For photography, avoid mid-day because overlook faces south.

I haven't done the South Rim, but the rims aren't far geographically from each other, so I can't imagine they're that different, but the North is definitely less visited, as it's harder to get to. I enjoyed feeling like I was the only one there....More

This is a beautiful and inspiring place to visit. It took us many miles out of the way to get here only to find no resources or staff.
