the trail is a storybook
by HAZ Hikebot

Inclines to flat. Well defined. Shade along trail. Most of the trail is paved and some sections are accessible. Excellent walking for quiet views of the inner canyon and for visitors who desire an easy hike with minimal elevation change. In winter surfaces may be slippery or icy when snowy. Beware of lightning during summer thunderstorms. Leashed pets are permitted on the trail but not on park shuttle buses.

Begin from any viewpoint in Grand Canyon Village or along Hermit Road. Can access the trail from many of the shuttle bus stops.

Trailhead Elevation is 6,820 feet, varies approximately 200 feet.

No water along trail. Water in Grand Canyon Village area and at Hermits Rest.
