Uncle Jim Trail
PreviousView south from the viewpoint at the end of the Uncle Jim TrailNext

Starting from the same point as the very long North Kaibab Trail on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Uncle Jim Trail is a pleasant, little-traveled route to a viewpoint overlooking several miles of the upper end of Bright Angel Canyon, and across to the distant cliffs of the South Rim. The trail is a partial loop, mostly through dense, lush forest, emerging into open terrain about half way along. The path is named after James T Owen, a game warden who lived in the vicinity at the start of the 20th century.

Length 5 miles (8 km), elevation change 100 feet (30 meters); loop
