Travellers talk about
Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

Wow! The only way to truly grasp the immensity of the Grand Canyon is to be there. North Rim is higher than the South Rim and much less crowded. You can take a seat on the terrace of the lodge and just breathe it in....More

Skip the big crowds and go to the north rim! Spectacular views, and best appreciated by going not only to the lodge and visitor center, but driving to Cape Royal and Point imperial which will take an extra 3-4 hours but well worth it. Stop...More

This was a highlight of our trip among the desert national parks. The north rim is expansive with wonderful trails but the fact that the lodge sits right on the canyon rim was amazing and provided spectacular views. Truly mind blowing in size and scope.

We visited the Grand Canyon lodge and ate lunch there and did an overnight camp out on the rim which was awesome.

Everyone told us North Rim was better than South Rim, so we went. It's a 4-5 hour trip from South Rim. The first 1-1.5 hours is kind of sad because of the apparent poverty of the residents of the areas we drove through, but the...More

We stayed at the Kaibab Lodge and took advantage of their shuttle service to the north rim the morning of our departure. The north rim has a wilderness feel that the south rim lacks. Prepare yourself for any hike into the canyon; the hike up...More

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is sacred and unbelievably stunning. I took so many pictures. Each spot I stopped at seemed unique and the vastness and beauty cannot be captured with a camera nor articulated here. When I stopped, I spent much time...More

I always tend to answer this type of question conservatively, so I would say yes, some ankle support is desired, so mid height hiking boots would be a good thing. YMMV
