South Rim

South Rim Trail

Begin this trail at the Wapiti Lake Trailhead on South Rim Drive near Chittenden Bridge. This partially paved trail parallels the canyon and connects the Wapiti Lake Trailhead with Uncle Tom’s Point and Artist Point (1.75 miles/2.8 km). You’ll wind in and out of forests between striking viewpoints of both falls and the canyon. Beyond Artist Point, the trail continues into the backcountry to Lily Pad Lake and other destinations.
