Very nice area and nice short hike. This is a high elevation hike so expect to be winded. The trail guide is interesting and was a good companion for the walk.

The final stop on the South Rim Road in the Black Canyon is Warner Point. It is the longest hike to get there (about a half mile round trip) but well worth the time. There was plenty of parking and even a few RV spots....More

Warner point has some amazing views of the canyon. You can see forever on a clear day. I think the trail going to the point is also a lot of fun. You can get a trail guide and look at all the types of plants...More
