  • Red Rock Point has one of the best views of the Lower Falls but it does require an investment of energy to reach.  The trail is not long – less than a mile round trip but is steep in places and has wooden stairs part the way.  But, the hike itself is beautiful and the view of the canyon and the Lower Falls cannot be beat.  I would think anyone in good health should be able to make it.  With the proper supervision, my four year old made it without to much trouble.

    It’s relatively unknown, but we like this hike because it’s not too hard or long, isn’t very busy, is shaded on part of the trail and has a really good view of the lower falls. We’ve been on it several times because it’s perfect if you just want something to do between dinner and bed or if your husband is addicted to hiking and your children can’t hike one more step so you chill in the car with the kids for a while and eat some snacks while your husband goes on a quick hike. And if you were having a snack and bathroom break and your husband took a little longer than you thought, you could even go to the Lower Falls lookout point that’s right there in the same parking lot and have a great view to look at while waiting for said husband. Some of the things that make this hike unique are that it has pine trees and near the end there is a red rock and a boardwalk/bridge/sidewalk thing you have to walk out on to get to the good view. Not the scariest thing ever for someone like me who is terrified of heights, but I did take it slow and didn’t look down.
