This Grand Canyon overlook is only accessible by shuttle. From the west end of South Rim Village, take the Red Hermits Rest shuttle. Trailview Overlook is the first stop as the shuttle is going west (the shuttle doesn't stop at Trailview going east). You can also walk here; it's 0.7 miles from the shuttle transfer point. This is a good option when the lines for the shuttle are too long...you can walk to the first overlook and pick up the shuttle from there. To get to the overlook, you have to walk down quite a few stairs, but the view is great. This is the only overlook to give you a view of the South Rim Village, and you can also see much of Bright Angel Trail from here.
