Overview: This passage begins at the Grandview Lookout Tower and starts out on the Tusayan Bike Trail heading west. It works its way through the forest, drops into a drainage and reaches Watson Tank. Now on forest roads, the route turns to the north and joins FR 303. It becomes single-track again, works its way over to the junction with FR 825 and turns to the north on this road. When it comes to the end of FR 825, the route becomes single-track again, passes Upper Ten X Tank, goes through a gate and then joins FR 818. It follows this road to FR 815 and then turns on to FR 814. It follows this road, passes a junction with FR 2709, and comes to Coconino Wash. It turns northwest and follows Bike Route 3 and then 2, which leads to Bike Route 1. The route curves to the north behind the town of Tusayan. A short climb and descent leads to a road junction and a turn to the west. The trail goes under Highway 64 and turns north to the Grand Canyon National Park boundary fence. After entering the park the route follows an old 2-track road until it reaches Vann Drive. It takes this road east to Highway 64, crosses it and follows another 2-track road up to SouthGate Road. From here it turns northeast on a restricted access dirt road. This road runs east and then north and connects to another dirt road. This road connects over to Highway 64 and then a trail follows the powerline corridor up along Yaki Point to the South Kaibab Trailhead.
