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.

For those of you who want to avoid Disney land on the south rim, this is the place. You can hike the North Kaibab Trail, picnic or meditate on the rim, or take it in from one of the platforms. The general store lady is...More

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

The magnificence of the Grand Canyon becomes evident the moment you look at this view. The colors range from deep reds to almost white in the strata surroundings.

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.
