The Colorado River Overlook (1 mile) easy

The path trails along the east rim to a gorgeous view of the Colorado River.

West Rim Trail (2.5 miles) moderate

The longest, most primitive hiking trail in the park offers stunning canyon views from both sides of the rim. The Meander, Shafer, and Rim overlook are spur trails well worth exploring, but add an additional mile to the hike.
