Cliff Spring Hot
From Jacob Lake, take US Highway 67 South towards the North rim of Grand Canyon National park. Once in the park, drive 9.5 miles to the signed junction with the Cape Royal road and Point Imperial and turn left (East). Drive 5.4 miles to the signed junction and turn right onto Cape Royal Road. Drive about 13.7 miles to the signed trailhead on the right.
If a short, easy hike to a natural spring near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon appeals to you, this is your hike.
From the small pullout, follow the signed trail along the easily followed dirt path. This trail drops into a small valley and you quickly come across an ancient native American granary. As always with ruins such as these, look but don't touch.
It's a short walk through the forest to the signed Cliff Spring, which is a seep underneath a large overhang. It's a cool and peaceful place. After you've enjoyed the atmosphere of Cliff Spring, return the way you came.
