Grandview Trail, Grand Canyon National Park

4.7
#7 of 16 in Trails in Grand Canyon National Park
One of the steepest within Grand Canyon National Park, Grandview Trail is also one of the most popular day hikes here. The descent can be grueling for many, but the payoff is a view of the canyon's mesas and a rare sense of true solitude. You can follow the trail down to a horseshoe-shaped mesa, where the Hopi once gathered minerals.

  • We took this beautiful trail as part of a five day walk down to horseshoe mesa. It is very steep and in some places a bit impressive, but less than I feared. The descent requires a little concentration because the trail is very irregular and a fall could be dramatic. Once you get to horseshe mesa the panoramas are breathtaking! Long and frankly hard climb but little by little we get there. No water neither at the trailhead nor at the mesa and as one is always in the sun predict very wide. In short, beautiful and perfect for those looking for something more adventurous than the train corridors, but it still requires a bit of organization and training, it's not a quiet family walk. Moreover, after a few hundred meters tourists begin to become increasingly rare.
