Cape Royal 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.

"Great views of the Grand Canyon and Angels Window"

Cape Royal is located on a winding road about 25 miles from the North Rim Visitor Center. Expect it to take about about an hour to get there. Along the way there are various view points to stop and enjoy. The Cape Royal trail is flat and easy and only about a 1/2 mile in length. Along the way you can take the spur to stand atop Angels Window, and incredible cliff with a giant hole in the middle, hence the name. I actually enjoyed that more than reaching the end of the trail at Cape Royal. One of the nice things about visiting Cape Royal is that you can actually see the Colorado River from here. Most other places along North Rim don't give the view of that incredible river which carved the vasts canyons you came to visit. Watch kids closely near the edges!
