Official Guide to Grand Canyon's North Rim


Just ten miles across the abyss from the busy South Rim, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is a world unto itself. Those who make their way here are rewarded with dramatic views, a sublime terrain, and a rare degree of solitude.

From trails and viewpoints to where to stay and what to look for—in this book, you’ll find everything you need to know to get the most from your visit. Naturalist and long-time canyon hiker Stewart Aitchison shares stories of the plant and animal communities, geologic forces, and human history that set this place apart. And the stories don’t stop at the park’s boundary—they stretch across the broad Arizona Strip, providing insights into the many wonders of this little-known land.

The inside front includes a map of day hikes and the inside back cover a highway map of roads as one approaches the North Rim.
