A short but rewarding plateau-top day hike on the North Rim leads to panoramic views. This trail offers the greatest rewards for the smallest investment of time and effort of any of the North Rim’s plateau-top trails. The route follows a gently rising, long-closed road through parklike forests of ponderosa pine to a panoramic viewpoint on the east rim of the Kaibab Plateau, affording an unusual perspective from high above Unkar Creek Canyon. This leisurely day hike is particularly attractive when summer heat grips the Inner Canyon.
