This moderate level trail wanders up and down the canyon rim along The Transept, a beautiful side canyon to the west of Grand Canyon Lodge and North Rim Campground. It also links to the northern portion of Bridle Path and the Backcountry Information Center. While this trail is not overly difficult, be advised that some portions wind steeply through woodlands and open vistas.
Be on the lookout for Mule deer and other wildlife!
