Grandview Point Trail to Horseshoe Mesa
Grandview Trail: Mines and Monoclines
The Grandview Trail, beginning from Grandview point east of the South Rim Visitor Center, is as unique as it is spectacular.  Along the way we will observe monoclines, folds in the Earth's crust that are remnants of the forces that built the Rocky Mountains, as well as observe the Canyon's most successful mining claim.  The dramatic vistas here are second to none, and this trail provides some solitude that the more popular trails do not.
