We hiked Widforss Trail through a ponderosa forest to Widforss Point. The ponderosas were interspersed with aspens and ferns wherever fire had cleared space. And certain parts were tree graveyards, with limbs and timber tumbled together like pick-up-sticks. The trail went in and out of...More

This is a moderate hike with some good views of a side canyon of the Grand Canyon. It is mostly shaded.

We had done this hike years ago, but did not really remember it. So when we were in the neighborhood we decided to try it again. It's 10 miles long, and we had a 6 hour drive coming up, so we decided to just go...More

This 10 mile, 16 km hike is not too strenuous. It follows the north rim for the first half before disappearing into the forest, and reappearing at a different point on the rim. It is very peaceful, with few people. The camera shy Kaibab squirrels...More

Fantastic 10 mile hike on the north rim. One of the best hikes I've enjoyed while living in AZ. Not terribly strenuous, not very crowded, and with beautiful rim and forest views. The trail hugs the Transept Canyon initially, then dips down into a forested...More
