My husband and I actually "ran" this trail (we definitely had to take some walk breaks). The scenery from start to finish was beautiful. It was challenging, but not a killer hike. Be prepared to climb quite a bit during the first half and then...More

We did the East Rim Trail backwards. We started in the National Park and hiked to the East Entrance! What an amazing hike. Unique views and absolute silence. I reccomend doing it early in the morning as the last part is quite sun exposed. :)

I hiked the East Rim whilst doing the Observation Point hike. The part of the East Rim trail I was on was lovely with great view at the end on observation point. Mainly in the sun so be prepared.

We explore the East Rim Trail (road to trail head is near East Entrance Station – north side of road). The short road ends at a small dirt parking lot. The East Rim Trail goes for more than 10 miles (to Weeping Rock). We hike...More

I was pretty hesitant about doing this hike. It is long (11 miles) with lots of elevation gain (1,000) and loss (2,300). I read the reviews and got the facts. Ultimately, decided it would be stretching my limits but didn’t want to be left out...More

This hike is very steep so make sure you have good shoes and plenty of water. It's all mainly uphill but the view is gorgeous, even inside the cave. I like how you can take this trail to Observation hike or the other two hikes...More
