“A steep, non-maintained trail offering canyon scenery & exposure to this area's mining history.”— Nicholas Shannon
Note: NO water along the trail. You MUST bring enough water with you.
Located on the South Rim, access is by vehicle to Grandview Point, 12 miles east of the village along the Desert View Drive. The trail begins on the canyon side of a retaining wall at Grandview Point. Trailhead Elevation: 7,400 feet.
The Grandview Trail day runs are to Coconino Saddle or Horseshoe Mesa. This trail follows the western side of a ridge, heads north, and descends to Horseshoe Mesa. Running as far as Horseshoe Mesa is not recommended during summer. This trail gets steeper and more tricky beyond Coconino Saddle. Trail conditions are tougher than the Bright Angel and South Kaibab trails.
