“jacob lake”(46 reviews)
“western cabins”(19 reviews)
Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

Magnificent views abound from every angel you stand at along the rim. The sunlight beams down on this magnificant canyon highlighting the ledges and creases! It is certainly a tremendous stop and well worth the time!

Gorgeous scenery that takes your breath away. Nice meals at the lodge. Cozy cabins you can rent. Stay a few hours or a few days. Not as crowded as the South Rim.

When people think of the Grand Canyon, they naturally think of the South Rim and views from there. While that is a wonderful place, the North Rim is very different. We saw a herd of buffalo as we drove in! It was much cooler, and...More

No, you park in a parking lot and the trail is 50 feet away. The trail itself is VERY easy. Long but not technical.
