If you have one hike to do at the canyon this is it. 45 minutes and 1.5 miles down and you’re at the top of the red wall at cedar ridge. Clivus toilets there as well. Take lots of water and photos!

We went to this trail to experience hiking down the Grand Canyon. We went to ooh aah point which is about 1/4 of the way down. The hike down was easier than going up. It’s very steep at points. We saw some squirrels and ravens...More
