Face it: the Grand Canyon is tourist-ridden, and this does detract from the experience. However, the Rim Trail provides an opportunity to leave the rest of civilization behind and see the canyon as it should be seen. My husband and I hiked between Hopi and Mohave points, which I believe was a little under a mile. It was difficult at times (we even had to leave the trail and climb back to the road when it got particularly scary), but it's worth the views you will see. For those who are not too adventurous, this is a great way to see the canyon.
