Trail Overview

A bucket list camping destination! This out-and-back trail on the north rim of the Grand Canyon takes you to Point Sublime dispersed camping area with 360 views of the canyon. The trail passes through a deep forest along the rim. It is moderately difficult and most likely impassable when wet/snowy. This route is just one way to get there. There are multiple routes you can explore. You will pass by multiple dispersed camping spots and fire lookout towers along the way. The best part - it's very unlikely you will see another group of people here. It's very remote so be prepared. A permit is required to camp.
