We took this hike to Ooh Aah Point-the views are indescribable. My in-laws who are in their late 60s were able to do this hike (with some stops along the way) and my 3 kids ranging from 15-8. If you haven’t been to the Grand...More

This is a terrific hike which is 0.9 miles one way if you only hike to Ooh Aah overlook. The trail begins with a lot of switchbacks and is downhill most of the way. The hike is worth the effort. We completed the hike in...More

One of the most beautiful trails in the park. Well maintained, easy to follow and gorgeous views. I highly recommend. Just remember it’s exposed to the sun and there’s no water sources so be prepared.

Maybe a collapsible one might be best. Pick up your fishing permit at the General Store in Market Plaza in the village. Bright Angel Creek may yield some fish.
