Cedar Ridge

Grand Canyon National Park South Rim

Located 1.5 miles along the challenging South Kaibab Trail, with a descent of 1040ft, this large and flat red-dirt overlook offers some of the best views of the South Rim and makes an excellent destination for a day hike and below-the-rim picnic. You'll find pit toilets, but there is no shade or water along the trail or at the viewpoint – if hiking in summer, start the hike before dawn to avoid the grueling heat.
