Unlike the other South Rim paths that descend below the rim, the Grandview Trail does not reach the Colorado River, instead dropping down 2,500 feet to a saddle beneath the flat peak of Horseshoe Mesa, site of an old copper mine, and a primitive camping area. Some parts of the trail are very steep but the mesa is a good day hike destination. Three continuation paths descend further, to intersections with the Tonto Trail, while the river can still be reached, by difficult, off-trail routes down the nearby drainages of Cottonwood Creek and Hance Creek.

Length 3 miles (4.8 km), elevation change 2,500 feet (762 meters); to Horseshoe Mesa
