The Cape Royal trail is an easily accessible walk. It has a great views of the Grand Canyon and topped off with the best view of Angel's Window.

If you drove all the way here, you MUST take the short hike out to the view point for some wondrous views of the canyon. Well worth the experience. An easy walk, but take water anyway.

This trail is in a less populated area of the North Rim. There is a parking lot with restrooms at the end of the road. The trail is paved and mostly flat with interpretive plaques. There are views of the Colorado River and Angel’s Window.

This is the most beautiful views of the north rim in my opinion. Easy hike with the most breathtaking views.

This paved trail has lots of parking and rest rooms. There are interpretive signs describing the flora and fauna of the area along with the great canyon views. The Colorado River is visible from this side of the canyon.

Cape Royal is considered one of the "Grand Slam Viewpoints" in the GCNP along with Bright Angel Point, Point Sublime and Toroweap. The drive might look a little long when looking at the map but it is not to be missed! I have wanted to...More
