Trailview Overlook offers a good opportunity to observe evidence of faulting; (A) Grand Canyon Village Historic District lies at the head of Garden Canyon in a natural depression along the South Rim related to down-to-the-east displacement on the Bright Angel Fault; (B) the Bright Angel Trail zigzags down from the rim, crossing onto the fault near the contact between the Toroweap Formation and Coconino Sandstone, then makes a series of tight switchbacks on a colluvial wedge of Toroweap debris deposited along the fault trace where it has completely fractured and offset the Coconino.
