Few people hike the Comanche Point Trail
, even though this leads to perhaps the finest viewpoint on the south (or east) rim of the canyon, looking out across a nine mile section of the Colorado River. Most of the route is along a disused vehicle track, starting just east of Desert View. The path starts by descending a little, close to the rim, then follows a partly wooded ravine, before moving across open land to a grassy plateau. The last section of the route is off-trail, up a steep slope to the point.
