This trail runs from Hermits Rest to Kaibab Trail, a span of almost 13 miles. The lodge also has some rooms touting partial views of the canyon. And the views are awesome! Head east from the lodge to see Yavapai Geology Museum and some of the more glorious views offered via their large windows, or go west to Trail View overlook.
An alternative to canyon view, is the street side view.
