Although all views of the Grand Canyon are just magnificent, be sure to save time and energy so you can hike and explore as you get to Hermit Trail. It's absolutely beautiful, quiet, and not too many hikers. Also, the gift shop has some gems...More

We did part of the Hermit Trail. Needless to say, given the canyon this trail is challenging. Lots of switchbacks and rocky trail. Very nice views and worth the effort.

Souvenir stop and one of the amazing views at the Grand Canyon Park. Very picturesque and a good stop to rest if needed. Food stand a little pricey. Staff at souvenir store were pleasant and informative.

A lovely spot on the Grand Canyon Rim Trail. For a few months during the winter you can drive there, the remainder of the year take the GC shuttle or long trek. Beautiful Mary Colter building. Great hot chocolate.

My favorite little area in the whole park. The drive over is amazing, with beautiful vistas. The fireplace on a cold day is just what one needs. Little gift shop, with great hiking out behind. I would recommend and will return again.

Took the bus and then walked back, spectacular views! They ran out of sandwiches at 11:30am, but no big deal.

you can hike or take the bus or even a combination of both. Don't miss this area when visiting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon

Hermits rest is the end of the line for the shuttles in the GrandCanyon, you can spend several hours shuttling/walking there along the rim. You will most likely be hungry when you get there. The egg salad sandwich was $7.50!! Advise you to pack lots...More
