A short but fascinating walk below the rim of Walhalla Plateau. This trail is a fine , albeit brief, introduction to the plateau and rim environments of the Grand Canyon’s North Rim. Distant views, a well-pr eserved Ancestral Puebloan granary, and a dripping spring hidden in an alcove beneath the rim offer a rewarding diversion for North Rim visitors budgeting their time and energy. This brief stroll gets under way at the Angels Window overlook, which affords a fine view of that interesting natural opening in the Kaibab Formation on the east rim of Cape Royal.

Nice, quiet, RELAXING hike along a shady trail through a pine forest. Note: trail is unmaintained and somewhat rocky. Ancient Anasazi granary (pretty neat!) is located a short distance from the trail head. Water drips from the cliff at Cliff Spring, hence the name.
