North Rim of the Grand Canyon (Navajo Bridge, Cape Royal Point & the Grand Canyon Lodge)
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.

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).

Other points of interest
Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass-bottomed bridge located only 2.5 hours drive from Las Vegas.

Cape Royal - Angel's Window on the North Rim, Grand Canyon 2012
our walk to Angels Window vista, our walk onto Angels Window terrace, our walk over to and on Cape Royal, the sunset from the picnic area and the lightning show which didn't film the best but you'll get the idea. Here is the link to my trip report and photos:

Riding north on Cape Royal Road in Grand Canyon National Park on the North Rim. I was riding a 2013 Triumph Explorer 1200 XC
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.

Grand Canyon North Rim trip
LINKS BELOW TO SKIP AHEAD
we left Bryce Canyon and head to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon June 9,2016.
WIND NOISE was an issue. I made those clips Silent. You might want your own music and read below if you need info. These views are Huge, so you may just want to watch in silent awe...
DO NOT MISS CAPE ROYAL. This is where the North Rim is most Spectacular.
Before our trip, I had carefully looked over the map to see if there was a view of the Colorado River we could get to. I found Navajo Bridge at Marble Canyon. 45 miles each way off the road to North Rim. A couple hours out of the way but we had the time and it meant we could also get a better look at the Vermilion Cliffs.
In 2014 Roxana and I took a trip around Utah and the Grand Canyon but our North Rim stay was so short we skipped Cape Royal. Then we got to the South Rim and saw a relief map display in a visitor center, and knew i would have to return to the North Rim to see Cape Royal.
Time Links below should give you the rest of the info, and will skip the video ahead if you want
0:46 part of the Grand Staircase, tiny Chocolate Cliffs in front, Vermilion and Grey Cliffs ascending behind them. At Antelope Pass Overlook. On the way to the North Rim, here you will also find Navajo vendors selling high quality hand made crafts, please help support this artistry if you can.
1:28 Vermilion Cliffs from a vista along AZ 89A
2:02 at the town of Marble Canyon is the Navajo Bridge. We are 6 miles west of the official start of the Grand Canyon, so the bridge technically crosses it. The bridge is in Navajo Nation, and there are Navajo vendors on the Navajo side.
The new vehicle bridge opened in 1995 allowing this original bridge to eventually be turned into a pedestrian bridge.
The foot bridge is 467 ft above the Colorado River.
The River water is green here due to algae being released from Glen Canyon Dam.
2:54 Condor Sighting! later we saw 2 flying over the North Rim Gate area but they were too far to film.
3:48 once you head south on AZ 67, you will be in OPEN RANGE- COWS, and in the Park, Bison may be on the road. In daytime you should be able to see them but at night they are nearly invisible. BE CAREFUL.
4:11 DeMotte campground. Very nice, but it is outside the Park. We added North Rim to our itinerary in February and all the campsites inside the Park were already reserved. For National Park campsites you often need to reserve SIX MONTHS in advance.
4:38 Bison Herd alongside the road inside the Park. Fortunately none were In the road at this time. We also saw some Condors flying overhead here. You might see a Condor anywhere near the Grand Canyon.
5:10 first view of the Grand
5:21 Roaring Springs Canyon. the Springs is The Source of water for both the North and South Rim. It is piped down, across, and back up the other side of the Canyon. there are no other water sources for the Park but there are some small springs for hikers in the Canyon itself.
5:38 Lodge cabins. Surprisingly affordable, but make your reservations forever in advance. A few are Right on the Rim.
5:50 short trail to Bright Angel Point. The South Rim has Bright Angel Trail and Bright Angel Lodge. North Rim has Bright Angel Point and Bright Angel Canyon.
6:25 a controlled burn on the South Rim. This fire was set by Rangers to get rid of dead brush. The skies are Very Hazy, but this small fire is not the main cause. The entire southwest was hazy during this time.
7:26 Bright Angel Canyon pointed out
7:52 zoom on Bright Angel Canyon.
8:00 The Colorado River is way out there below that far cliff, we can't see it from up here.
8:40 the Lodge is At the Rim. There is a visitor center, gift shops, Fine Dining, a Good buffet, a Deli, and of course restrooms. You are welcome to sit on the couches and use the patio. We saw waiters bring drinks to the patio chairs so not sure if they will shoo you away eventually if you dont buy a drink but we had no problems hanging out for half an hour. we REally enjoyed the buffet, no reservations or dress code $25/person GOOD food and a Grand Canyon View.
9:51 We happened ot be here during a Star Party week. These telescopes are privately owned by people who organized with the Park to let them set up here. At night they focus on different objects and people can take a look, and Many people showed up.
10:27 heading to Cape Royal. If you go, DO NOT MISS THIS AREA.
Point Imperial first, at 8,803 ft elevation the Highest Viewpoint of the Grand Canyon.
10:46 looking north east towards Navajo Bridge area. Views and more Views

A Tour of North Rim Grand Canyon Overlooks | Grand Canyon National Park
Have you ever wondered how the overlooks at the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park compare to those of the South Rim? Then this video is the one you want to watch! We drive along Cape Royal Road and make stops at Point Imperial, Roosevelt Point, Walhalla Overlook, Angels Window and Cape Royal Point. The views are not to be missed!
The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park stands at a higher elevation than the South Rim and offers gorgeous views of Bright Angel Canyon, the Grand Canyon, numerous plateaus as well as the San Francisco Peaks.
Due to the nature of the North Rim's remoteness, there is no shuttle service and travel to the overlooks must be done by your own vehicle.

Any day, another stunning set of views.
I was lucky to spend a few days on the south and north rim of the Grand Canyon and to be honest, I couldn't split them in terms of which is best. The South Rim has more development, more facilities, more hiking points, more viewing points and is generally the most popular place to go. But even with all this development (and people) it was very easy to find a spot where you were alone and could just stare in bewilderment at the views.
The North Rim is far, far less developed. There is no real 'Village' on the scale of the South rim, and it lacks infrastructure of all sorts (very little wifi for a start). But the peace is the major positive. The views are just as spectacular, just as jaw-droppingly beautiful and I found it almost painful to finally leave.
The only reason not to go to the North side is the time it takes to get there if you are on the Lav Vegas side of the Canyon. I had the time because I made the time. The only problem now is I want to go back...
Grand Canyon National Park North Rim | Different in a nice way!
Only 10 miles as the raven flies from the South Rim, the North Rim offers a very different visitor experience
Make our day! Give us a thumbs-up, SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and/or SHARE this video. Are we asking TOO much?
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!
