Comanche Point Trail
PreviousView west from Comanche Point, looking towards the North Rim plateauNext

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.

Length 6.2 miles (10 km), elevation change 670 feet (204 meters)
