Cape Royal

270-degree view of the canyon

Save to my Account

Stand at the tip of the Walhalla Plateau and you’re surrounded by 270 degrees of spectacular canyon formations. The 15-mile drive to get there winds through pine forest past Vista Encantada, Roosevelt Point (10-minute walk), and Wahalla Ruins (rock foundations of two Anasazi houses) to reach the majestic scene. A paved, .3-mile path leads to the view of the river a mile below and six miles away. A short side trail drops below the viewpoint to Angels Window, a natural arch in the limestone caprock. The nearby Cliff Springs Trail, 1-mile roundtrip, leads through a forested ravine to a flowing spring.
