Stop by the information center and get a hiking map. Drive all the way to the end of the canyon and take a walk to the pond. The day we visited, we arrived right after a tour group emptied out of the area and it was blissfully silent except for the birds flying back and forth from their nests along the canyon clifftops. Make sure you continue to follow the walking path from the platform overlooking the pond to a viewpoint with a glorious panorama of the entire canyon. Short of climbing up the island or the canyon walls, this was the most sensational view!
