Fodor's Review

This stunning canyon is 23 miles long, but there is only one trail from rim to base. As a result, most visitors clog the north and south rims to see Upper and Lower Falls. Unless you're up for the strenuous six-hour hike called Seven Mile Hole, you have no choice but to join the crowds to see this natural wonder. The red-and-ochre canyon walls are topped by emerald-green forest. It's a feast of color. Keep an eye peeled for osprey, which nest in the canyon's spires and precarious trees.
