Grand Canyon’s Cape Final

Not sure why they call it Cape Final although if you take one more step at this Grand Canyon rim viewpoint, it will be your final. It’s about a 3,000 foot drop from this point. To get there, you hike two miles through a Ponderosa pine forest with moderate elevation gain. The trail head is a few miles north of the main road to Cape Royal at the North Rim. You can actually obtain a back country permit in order to camp here overnight. I plan to do that sometime soon.
