Cape Royal on the North Rim provides a panorama up, down, and across the canyon. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is popular for both sunrise and sunset. The sweeping turn of the Colorado River at Unkar Delta is framed through the natural arch of Angels Window. Look for the Desert View Watchtower across the canyon on the South Rim. This popular viewpoint is accessible via a paved, level trail. Cape Royal and Point Imperial are reached via a winding scenic drive. The trip to both points, with short walks at each and several stops at pullouts along the way, can easily take half a day. Lodging and food service facilities on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park are open for the summer season between May 15 and October 15 of each year. Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim, a Forever Resorts property, and Grand Canyon Trail Rides operate during this 5 month period.
