It is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). 4x4 vehicle with high clearance required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Expect frequent lightning strikes. At the summit is a lookout tower built in 1928, formerly known as Bright Angel Point Fire Tower. It offers tremendous views to the east, south, and west.
