Trail Overview

Trail 611P is truly a gem hidden among the forest. On the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, but far East enough to have spectacular views of Marble Canyon and the Navajo Reservation, this trail is nothing short of amazing! With its epic views and numerous (but not too crowded) camp spots, you won't want to leave this trail soon. The surrounding forest is densely packed with Ponderosa and Pinon Pines, and groves of Aspen trees that whistle in the wind atop this ridge. Closer to the split-off of East Rim Ridge Trail, you'll find larger campsites with rock fire rings that can house travel trailers. The deeper you get into this trail, the better it gets, but if you intend on getting to the end, you'll need a high-clearance vehicle, as the one rough spot on this trail is a series of steps that are bound to get worse with time and use. But trust me, the effort is well worth it, with the views at the end of the trail making you feel like the whole world is at your feet.

Difficulty

A series of steps toward the end of the trail that will get worse with use, and the need for a high-clearance, 4x4 vehicle makes this rating what it is.
