Grand Canyon National Park N Rim Lodge Trails

Hiking the RIM trails are ideal day hikes. They offer a variety of different views along trails that offer good hiking with little elevation change. There are two short trails in the lodge area that make ideal day hikes for everyone.

The BRIGHT ANGEL POINT TRAIL offers a short half mile (1 mile round trip) hike with a great view of the canyon. The TRANSEPT TRAIL offers a 1.5 mile (3 miles round trip) hike, the view is mostly of the side canyon.
