The Lost Mine Trail is one of the most popular in the park. Most hikers in good shape can do the round-trip in three to four hours. For those without the time to hike to the South Rim, this trail is an excellent substitute.
People with even less time or energy may elect to hike only the relatively easy first mile of the trail; on clear days this provides beautiful views of Juniper Canyon and south into Mexico. A self-guiding booklet for this trail can be obtained from a box at the trailhead; numbered posts along the route match the guide.
