spectacular views. The trail extends to Hermits Rest from any of the lookout points in the Grand Canyon Village. You can tailor the walk to your time and physical abilities, thanks to the shuttle pick-up stops along the way. There are refreshments available at both ends but it is advisable that you take some water with you on the hike.

Amazing place the views are breathtaking and the overall feeling is spectacular, I CANNOT RECOMMEND ENOUGH waking up for the SUNRISE here then taking a hike down, we did 3 miles down and it was a great time not too steep or difficult many families with kids and babies as well so suitable for all!

The views from the Grand Canyons South Rim are amazing and when you go off season (Winter) you can drive a large extra section to the Hermits Rest.

The rim trail offers stunning views. It is plenty wide enough so you are not forced to walk right along the edge, if that concerns you.

Terribly easy, but breath-taking walkway along the rim of the Grand Canyon. Not a strenuous hike by any means, but good thing as you need all your energy for photography!

Easy trail for the whole family. Bring water and a camera, but otherwise don't worry. It's very accessible.

This is a great "walk" for those not able to hike down into the canyon. Spectacular views on this trail. Great for the family.

The most used trail is the Bright Angel Trail, located behind the Bright Angel Lodge. This same trail is also used by the donkeys which have the right of way. READ all precautions before trying this trail. People die without enough water! It is DIFFICULT coming back up!

Mellow 3+ mile walk along the rim, takes you to a number of fabulous viewpoints. Lots of interpretive signs. It is paved so is nice for wheelchairs/strollers.
