The Vishnu Trail is a 1.1 mile scenic loop trail that begins just north of the historic  Grandview Lookout Tower. The trail goes out to a point on the Coconino Rim with spectacular views of the Grand Canyon in the distance. The loop trail returns to Grandview along a section of the Arizona Trail. The Vishnu Trail is great for biking, horseback riding, hiking and viewing the forest.
