The overlooks off the north rim drive are beautiful. It is amazing to see all the ruins. I happened to be there on a quiet day. I loved the quiet settings with only the sounds of the birds and animals in the canyon.

We have done both north and south rim drives--both are great but if you only have time for one--do the south rim drive.

We found out about this canyon by accident as it was close to where we stayed overnight. Less than 3 miles from us was a beautiful canyon! So happy our waitress told us about it. Worth the drive if you are close by!

Longer walks on solid rock to access these views, rather than the parking lot stops on the south rim. Still worth the time to take in the views of the canyons below.

There are only three overlooks along the north rim which is a 34 mile round trip. Consequently, it doesn't take as long to do this drive compared with the south rim. However, the views from the overlooks are just as spectacular as those from the...More
