Cape Royal is a 45 minute (one-way) drive from the visitor center and lodge area of the North Rim Grand Canyon, but it is by far the best view of the Grand Canyon from an accessible place on the north rim region. A perfect place to see the sunset and glowing colors on the canyon walls. The drive is little tough as you have to drive on a narrow road winding around the mountain. There is a huge parking area and we had to walk for another half a mile of a developed trail to reach the point. Most of the people crossed the fence and positioned themselves to the rocks underneath for a better view. The area can get very windy especially if a storm is approaching.
