Hiking

If you were to hike one of the trails leading to the Inner Gorge, you would be able to see exposed rock strata ranging in age from 1.7 billion years at the Inner Gorge, to limestone deposited 250 million years ago on the Kaibab Plateau, to the 1-million-year-old black lava flows in the western canyon. It took the Colorado River a mere 4 to 6 million years

With a history that starts nearly 4,000 years ago , the Grand Canyon North Rim has been home to the Desert Archaic people, the Anasazi, and the Paiute all before Europeans came in 1540.

Grand Canyon Paiute

Paiute

The Paiute were the ones to give the plateaus of the North Rim their names. It was the beauty of the area that gave the Paiutes the ideas for names. Kaibab, meaning "Mountain Lying Down," is the easternmost plateau. Here you will find Grand Canyon Lodge and major trailheads. Kanab, meaning "Willow," is just west of Kaibab and home to Kanab Canyon. Uinkaret, meaning "Place of Pines," is home to Toroweap Point. Here, millions of years ago, molten rock flowed over the canyon rim and coated the walls with lava. The Shivwits, meaning "Little People," are home to Hurricane Cliffs. The North Rim is a great place to see some unique rock formations and the Colorado River. The North Rim is home to six hiking trails and two scenic drives.
