  • South Rim tour viewpoint, close to Powell Point and a little further to Hopi Point, one of the most popular spots. In the opposite direction the track (with excellent views) takes us to the transfer point of the buses of the park.

  • We went down the Bright Angel Trail for about 30 minutes, turned back, and then we got here. The Bright Angel Trail is impossible to get down stairs with children or the elderly. It's a short walk from here and the scenery is great!

  • A picture is worth a thousand words - take a look at this shot. The view is stunning! So if you are at the Grand Canyon, don't miss the opportunity and be sure to take a few pictures.
  • Hermit road is closed to public vehicles. You can use the shuttle busses to visit the different looks outs, walk, or use bikes like we did. On foot or bikes will get you access to some lookouts that the busses don't stop at but are worth the exercise to enjoy the view. The bases are equipped to carry bikes so when you got to Hermit's rest, you can take them shuttle back to the start. Bikes can be rented on location or you can use your own. There are washrooms at one of the look outs between the start and Hermit's rest. There is also plenty of water at Hermit's rest but none in between so be sure to bring what you will need.
