Seeing the Grand Canyon has been our to-do list since we moved to the US. We had originally planned to visit Grand Canyon National Park’s South Rim; however, after revamping our trip, the North Rim was the most feasible option. We had a bit of a late start from where we were staying in Springdale (near Zion National Park) so we only had time for one walk at the Grand Canyon. We chose the Bright Angel Point Trail.

The Bright Angel Point Trail is a relatively easy walk (around .9 miles roundtrip) that takes you to a fantastic lookout point. You can start the trail either at the Grand Canyon Lodge or a short walk from the Visitor Center. The trail is short, steep at points, and has great views of the canyon. If you only have time for one trail on your visit to the North Rim, this is the one I recommend.

Here are my 7 photos that captured our walk to Bright Angel Point in Grand Canyon National Park (North Rim) with a photo-by-photo breakdown below:

It was pretty great!
