Comments:

Did this as an offshoot of the South rim loop. Nice views from the top. Not that impressive of a trail but once you get to the top you have a nice 360 view. It is a bit cluttered with all of the radio equipment.There were a lot of people on the trail by mid morning. Lots of noise from the biker crowd down in the basin. Not what I really want to hear when I'm in the mountains.
