hiking the north rim of the grand canyon ~ point imperial ~ cape royal ~ cape final
We attempt to get a permit to hike north coyote butte and when that fails we head off to the grand canyon. On this day we do all of the hikes along the north east part of the park. We hit up point imperial, cape final, cape royal, and angels window before we find our sweet camping spot.

Hiking Spencer Trail in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
We spent a morning exploring a trail from Lee's Ferry – one the few places in hundreds of miles from which one can easily access the Colorado River from both sides. We hiked up to the crest where we were rewarded with fantastic views for miles around across the vast landscape.

The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona, United States. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile. Grand canyon national park | Grand canyon skywalk
The canyon and adjacent rim are contained within Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the Navajo Nation. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery.
Cape Royal and Bright Angel Point are the most popular viewpoints (and for good reason – they’re spectacular).
Point Imperial, a short drive away (great for sunrise and sunset).
Cape Royal Trail and Bright Angel Point Trail, both of which are an easy half mile roundtrip.
Coconino Overlook via the North Kaibab Trail is a 1.4 mile roundtrip hike climbing 800 feet down.
Where to stay
$$ – Grand Canyon Lodge (the only lodge located at the North Rim, reservations must be made over a year in advance).
$$ – Hampton Inn Kanab (located 1.5 hours drive away in the town of Kanab).
$ – North Rim Campground (open mid May to late October).
Other points of interest
Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass-bottomed bridge located only 2.5 hours drive from Las Vegas.
Painted Desert & Petrified Forest, a stunning national park at the East Rim of the canyon. The entry fee is $10 and the park closes at 6PM.
Desert View, where you can climb an old watchtower to get awesome views of the canyon.
Havasu Falls, a tribal reservation located inside the canyon. The Havasu Falls Trail will take you to a picturesque waterfall with bright blue water that looks almost out of place in the red desert.
Horseshoe Bend near Page, AZ. You may have seen photos of it already as this spot on the Colorado River is incredibly photogenic.
Tusayan Ruins and Museum, an 800-year-old Pueblo Indian site.

The Beautifull Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon National Park is the United States' 15th oldest national park. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, the park is located in northwestern Arizona. The park's central feature is the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River, which is often considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The park covers 1,217,262 acres (1,901.972 sq mi; 492,608 ha; 4,926.08 km2) of unincorporated area in Coconino and Mohave counties. As of 2015, the park received more than five and a half million recreational visitors, which is the second highest count of all U.S. national parks after Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Grand Canyon was officially designated a national park in 1919, though the landmark had been well known to Americans for over thirty years prior.In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt visited the site and said: The Grand Canyon fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison—beyond description; absolutely unparalleled through-out the wide world... Let this great wonder of nature remain as it now is. Do nothing to mar its grandeur, sublimity and loveliness. You cannot improve on it. But what you can do is to keep it for your children, your children's children, and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see.
Despite Roosevelt's enthusiasm and his strong interest in preserving land for public use, the Grand Canyon was not immediately designated as a national park. The first bill to establish Grand Canyon National Park was introduced in 1882 by then-Senator Benjamin Harrison, which would have established Grand Canyon as the second national park in the United States after Yellowstone. Harrison unsuccessfully reintroduced his bill in 1883 and 1886; after his election to the presidency, he established the Grand Canyon Forest Reserve in 1893. Theodore Roosevelt created the Grand Canyon Game Preserve by proclamation on 28 November 1906and Grand Canyon National Monument in 1908. Further Senate bills to establish the site as a national park were introduced and defeated in 1910 and 1911, before the Grand Canyon National Park Act was finally signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. The National Park Service, established in 1916, assumed administration of the park.
The creation of the park was an early success of the conservation movement. Its national park status may have helped thwart proposals to dam the Colorado River within its boundaries. (Later, the Glen Canyon Dam would be built upriver.) In 1975, the former Marble Canyon National Monument, which followed the Colorado River northeast from the Grand Canyon to Lee's Ferry, was made part of Grand Canyon National Park. In 1979, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site.
In 2010, Grand Canyon National Park was honored with its own coin under the America the Beautiful Quarters program
A variety of activities at the South Rim cater to park visitors. The South Rim Drive (35 miles (56 km) is a driving tour split into two segments. The western drive to Hermit's Point is 8 miles (13 km) with several overlooks along the way, including Mohave Point, Hopi Point, and the Powell Memorial. From March to December, access to Hermit's Rest is restricted to the free shuttle provided by the Park Service. The eastern portion to Desert View is 25 miles (40 km), and is open to private vehicles year round.
Walking tours include the Rim Trail, which runs west from the Pipe Creek viewpoint for about 8 miles (13 km) of paved road, followed by 7 miles (11 km) unpaved to Hermit's Rest. Hikes can begin
On the North Rim there are few roads, however, there are some notable vehicle accessible lookout points including Point Imperial, Roosevelt Point, and Cape Royal. Mule rides are also available that go to a variety of places including several thousand feet down into the canyon.
Many visitors to the North Rim choose to make use of the variety of hiking trails including the Widforss Trail, Uncle Jim's Trail, the Transept Trail, and the North Kaibab Trail, the latter of which can be followed all the way down to the Colorado River, and to across to the South Kaibab Trail and the Bright Angel Trail, which continue up to the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
The Toroweap Overlook is located in the western part of the park on the North Rim. Access is via unpaved roads off Route 389 west of Fredonia, Arizona. The roads lead through Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument and to the overlook.

ABOUT GRAND CANYON’S NORTH RIM IN UTAH
Only 10 miles as the raven flies from the South Rim, the North Rim offers a very different visitor experience. Solitude, awe-inspiring views, a slower pace and the feeling of going back in time are only a few. The rim trails, drives and overlooks are more varied and diverse.
The Grand Canyon North Rim is very close to the Utah Border. It requires more effort to visit the North Rim than it does to visit the South Rim. It is more remote and less visitor will make it to the North side. It is further from any freeways, it is ONLY open seasonally from May 15th through October 15th each year, there is not an Airport nearby - Page, Arizona and St. George, Utah being the closest, and it is just over 200 miles from the South Rim-requiring a 4 hour drive.
Now with that all said, if this is not your first time to Grand Canyon, I would highly recommend the North Rim to you. (First time visitors, it's best to visit the South Rim first!) Many visitors who go to the North Rim in Grand Canyon National Park, also go visit Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. The North Rim offers incredible views and some great day hikes.
North Rim Viewpoints not to be missed:
• Point Imperial
• Cape Royal
• Roosevelt Point
• Walhalla Overlook
• Bright Angel Point
North Viewpoints that require hiking or 4 wheel drive vehicles:
• Cape Final - approx. 2 mile hike each way - 4 miles round trip
• Saddle Mountain - can be reached from the Point Imperial overlook
• Uncle Jim Point - approx. 2 mile hike each way - 4-5 miles round trip
• The Widforss Trail - approx. 5 mile hike each way - 10 miles round trip
• Point Sublime - 4 Wheel Drive recommended
That’s just a small part of the adventure and beauty you’ll find here!

Need to Know
There is no water available.
Fires and charcoal grills prohibited.
No hunting or collecting.
No drones, wingsuits, or base jumping.
Preparedness and Directions
Flat tires are most frequent on smooth,
graded sections of roadway hiding
unseen fractured, sharp, limestone.
Travel slowly, 30 mph (50 kph) or less,
to avoid flat tires.
Carry extra water, food,
and warm clothing.
Due to rapidly changing conditions,
be equipped to spend the night.
During monsoon season, visit in
the morning before
the afternoon storms.
Flooding may occur when the
chance of precipitation is as low
as 10 percent. During muddy
winter conditions, travel when
routes are frozen and overnight
temperatures below 20°F (-7°C).
What to Experience
Watch Your Step! For your safety,
as well as the protection of a
delicate ecosystem, be careful where
you step and drive. A 3000-foot (915 m)
drop is one concern.
The less obvious micro-biotic crusts
are another; they hold soil and plant
nutrients in place and can
be easily damaged.
When exploring on foot, please stay
on trails, roads, washes, or rock
surfaces to protect the crusts and
avoid damaging native plants.
Toroweap Overlook: Dramatically
different than other Grand Canyon
viewpoints, Toroweap Overlook peers

Tuweep Hiking Trails: Two established
hiking trails can be accessed
from Tuweep. Their trailheads are
signed and cairns (piles of rock)
mark their path.
Plan ahead for your hike and
remember that shade is scarce
and water non-existent.
All trails are closed to
pets, bicycles, and vehicles.
Tuckup Trail: The Tuckup Trail
gives hikers a spectacular taste
of Esplanade slick-rock on a
former prospector’s path.
Follow the trail 3 miles (5 km) to
Cove Canyon and experience an
inner-canyon day hike rewarded
with endless views.
Access the Tuckup Trailhead north
of Tuweep Campground
or, if camping, from site 10.
Saddle Horse Loop Trail:
This 45-minute loop offers spectacular
views of the Colorado River,
as well as a colorful walk through
the native plant gardens protected
and nourished by beautiful displays
of micro-biotic crusted soils.
Every inch of crusted toppings signifies
10-years of growth and erosion.
Imagine what the landscape would
look like without these living organisms
doing their job. Access the trail along
the road between Toroweap Overlook
and Tuweep Campground or from
a trailhead near campsite 5.

Grand Canyon North Rim Adventure Arizona HD
Hiking the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona is truly a thrill. The main difference between the North and South Rims is the view and the fact that there are a whole lot less people. This video was shot along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon by Larry Richardson for RichardsonArtPhotographyStore.com using an Apple iPhone 7.

Grand Canyon's North Rim Viewpoints / Look Outs
This video is from our visit to the Grand Canyon’s North Rim, Arizona.
As part of our October 2016 holiday to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon in the USA, we twice visited the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We hadn’t planned on this being part of our trip due to the distance from our hotel in Hurricane, and while it is quite a long drive, the first visit convinced us that a second visit was in order. But, instead of walking the trails, we decided we’d take it easy and walk to some of the viewpoints and take a few photos as we went.
The viewpoints that we visited in the video are Bright Angel Point (and smaller viewpoints on the way), Point Imperial, Vista Encantada and Roosevelt Point.
As I mentioned previously, a disk corruption meant that I lost many of my DSLR photos from this trip, so the photos (in the blog post) are from my iPhone.
