Description

This is the first trail you encounter when leaving the visitor center. The trail goes for a half mile along the rim until it dead ends at the dam, and you can continue on the South Rim Trail. Along the way, there are a few overlooks that provide good views into the gorge. On the other side of the trail it runs into the Inspiration Loop Trail, which has more views of the gorge.

The Hurricane Falls Trail is accessed from this trail.
