North Kaibab Coconino Overlook
North Kaibab Trail, accessed from the Grand Canyon's North Rim, starts at elevation 8250, and begins by winding down a steep trail through a high alpine forest of Aspen, Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine. The Coconino Overlook (pictured here) is only .75 miles and 500' below the rim. This area is a showcase of coconino sandstone with faults and many layers of rock visible here. The red rocks seen are the Supai formation. The Coconino Overlook gives a nice view of Roaring Springs Canyon.
