Hero: Sowats Point
small-sr Icon
Sowats Point is likely the most boring trail that leads to the most unexpected view. The effects of the 2006 Sowats Wildfire are still evident. The trail passes through an unimpressive growth of random small bushes and stunted junipers. While not difficult, the track is annoyingly bumpy. The few campsites along the way are uninspiring. The Jump Up - Nail hiking trailhead looks like it hasn't seen any action in quite a while. Then you take a left at the Y intersection towards a small hill. Angels begin to sing because this view western reaches of the Grand Canyon is completely and unexpectedly breathtaking. A right at the Y intersection takes you to a game water collection site.
