Saturday December 3, 2011, I hiked the West Rim Trail (7 miles). Otherwise noted as the Yellow Trail. Outstanding photography opportunities throughout my travels. I spent 4 hours and barely was able to complete the yellow trail due to the magnificant scenery. The leaves were gone so I had unobstructed views of the streams, waterfalls, stairs and across the Canyon. Many bridges to cross also allowing for great photography. The water along the streams were rapid not trickling. The water falls were raging not pathetic. It was better them Amicalola Falls by a landslide and the canyon was terrific. I am rating this my best hike yet even better then Tallahula Gorge because it offered more variety in my opinion. This is a definite two day park but if you only have day go directly to the falls then do the yellow trail.
