Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

For great views of the canyon and some solitude, head for the North Rim. Pay attention to winter road closings in you plan to travel between October and May.

Does it really need another review? Well worth a visit! This was our first one. And we enjoyed it! We just could do the little hike from the Lodge to Bright Angel Point and take in the view. Why do they call it "Grand Canyon"?...More

This is another vantage point as opposed to south rim. Amazing and breaktaking as well. Plenty of hiking trails. Dress appropiately as when sun goes down, temperatures drop rapidly. Amazing colors, pinks, lavenders, oranges and reds. A natural wonder of this world.

I went there by occasionally when I visited the Coyote Buttes North. It is not popular as South Rim but still nice place to enjoy the Grand Canyon. You may ask the staff the best place to watch sunset. It was very beautiful.

While we have visited the South Rim several times, last visit, we included the North Rim as well. Totally different view of the canyon. Less visitors X& good hiking trails.

Entry fee of $30 per vehicle, no charge with NPS Senior Pass. We spent 2 nights here and the views are just mind boggling. A walk down to Bright Angel Point is a must but be careful of your steps, especially if it is windy....More
