Overview

This is a moderate one way trail to Grandview Point in Grand Canyon National Park.

This trail goes by Miners Spring and Grand View Point.

Water is generally available year round at the Colorado River, Hance Creek, and Page Springs.

Taking Children

This is a challenging hike because it is long and covers a lot of elevation. (No surprise there. This is the Grand Canyon.) It's not particularly dangerous (as long as you take all of the normal precautions for hiking in the desert.) This trail doesn't have much risk of falls. It's not a good place for a first-time backpacker, but kids with a lot of hiking experience will love this.

    Beatiful trail. I met this trail at Hance Rapids (from Escalante Route). The hike up Hance Creek canyon was beautiful and memorable. Hance Creek makes a great place to camp. The creek is pretty small, but reliable. There is a lot of space for camping. There were two other groups while I was there (eight other people) and I was able to keep my distance from them. The hike up past Page Springs is less challenging than I was expecting after hearing it described with so many superlatives and expletives. It's uphill, but not treacherous. I didn't think it was any harder than the climb up Grand View from Horseshoe Mesa.
