The East Rim Viewpoint is the best but this trail is also accessable from hwy 89a less than 2 miles east of Jacob Lake. From this point the trail is in pine forest. Riding south to the East Rim would be about 30 miles, another 7 to the national park boundary, my favorite section of this trail.
Some day I have to ride it north to the Utah border, big descent. Elevations range from below 5000' at Utah to 8400' and higher south of East Rim. Actually called the Kaibab Trail and is part of the AZ Trail. Few people here.
