The second overlook along the West Rim Drive affords sightseers a partial view of Bright Angel Trail . From this point, visitors will find themselves at some 7,050 feet. In 1976, the world's first foot-launched hang gliding flight into the Canyon was executed from this lookout. Access to this point is via the trail system linking the overlooks along West Rim Drive and by shuttle in the summer months.
