Trail Overview

The north rim of the Grand Canyon is spectacular from this trail located in Kaibab National Forest. There is a section just before Fire Point that unlicensed vehicle owners should park and hike the last mile.


Easy: Most of the roads are wide and well maintained except for the short stretch between Waypoints 05 and 08. After Road 206 passes Quaking Aspen Spring, the road narrows to one lane and is somewhat overgrown, although it's not scratchy. As it climbs to 271, 206 gets steeper and rougher.


Fires are fairly common on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. At Fire Point, you'll see evidence of the latest fire, which occurred in July 2011. A hiking trail runs from Fire Point to Timp Point, then continues to other points along the rim.
