Located along the rim of the Grand Canyon and connecting five large "Points" of land which overhang the Canyon and the Arizona Strip. The five "Points" are: Parissawampitts, Fence, Locust, North Timp and Timp. Each offers a different view and perspective of Grand Canyon features such as Powell Plateau, Steamboat Mountain, Tapeats Amphitheater and Great Thumb Mesas, as well as the Mt. Trumbull region of The Arizona Strip. In addition to the areas along the rim, the trail passes through a forest of old growth Ponderosa pine and drops into a number of steep-sided canyons filled with groves of aspens and small meadows.

    [b]Party of eight hiked on a wonderful cool day. First time I had been there. It is a beautiful hike. Trees were changing color so just added to the beauty of the hike. Had lunch then back to car in 2hrs 25 minutes. Tired but very happy. Would like to do the rest some time... :)
