|Facilities: Facilities for the Cape Royal Trail are located at the visitor center at the north rim.|

Accessibility: The trail is accessible.
Rules: Obey all posted signs.

From North Rim Entrance Station, drive southward along North Rim Parkway to a junction with the Cape Royal Road. Trail begins at the southeast side of the Cape Royal parking area.
