Point Sublime is our favorite overlook on the north rim. The easiest way to enter is from Wpt. 01. Alternate entrance from Wpt. 08 is more challenging (and we think more fun). You can also add an easy side trip to Swamp Point. We suggest you pay the park entry fee and take time to go to the North Rim Visitor Center. This way you’ll get the complete park experience and also have an entry receipt if you get stopped by a park ranger on the trails. Overnight camping requires a special permit that can only be obtained by fax or in-person visit.

The trail has had a lot of downed trees that have been cut but makes parts very tight. A lot of overgrowth, anything wider than a jeep will get scratched. There has been no real trail maintenance and is in pretty bad shape from the park to Point Sublime. Plan for an all-day trip with this.
