Create an itinerary including S Rim Trail
Hike on S Rim Trail for a visually spectacular experience, with many waterfalls large and small cutting through the rocky hills. Climb to Artist Point for an open view of the valley, and look out for wildlife, such as bison. Talk to the park rangers for information about the plant and animal life, as well as the history of the park and the trail itself. Alternatively, choose a ranger-guided hike, where they give out information as you pass the important spots on the trail. The route, mostly paved, is easy enough for walkers of all skill levels.

  • Be aware that Uncle Tom's trail is closed. Trail is popular, but not crowded. Somewhat paved, and bring bear spray and mosquito repellent.

  • We had some great views of what was opened. Uncle Tom's trail was not open so we did not get to do that part of the trail. What we did was fairly easy and provided some great views.
