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.

Well, if you like mountains and Canyon this is the best one. Go for hiking and take a long walk along the Canyon. Only challenge that it can get crowded. Morning was beautiful and overall good to visit. December: it is cold so be prepared....More

The secluded north rim is so quiet and peaceful, it is well with the extra time it takes to travel there. Even if the north rim lodge area is busy, you can get away and enjoy the peace and quiet very easily

I had never been to the Grand Canyon but chose the north rim because it was supposedly less crowded. We were there in late September and that was certainly true. It was amazing to look out onto the canyon and realized everything was completely silent....More

No - there are paved paths on the main trails at the very end of the road, but they are narrow and undulate. There are some pull ins on the drives that you just step straight out of a car to the view.

Not the trails around the lodge. But I would wear hiking shoes for trips greater than one hour.
