We stopped here first thing on our trip of the Grand Canyon. Glad we did, they have a short 20 minute film of what to expect for first timer's and gave advice about what trails to do and where to go for the best view during sunset. Friendly staff and short lines.

Go here first! Talk to the park rangers and let them inform you of what to do and when programs are offered. Let the rangers know how much time you have and how long you will be staying. They are very informative and will let you know what activities will be offered for those in your party........

There are many boards just outside the centre showing all the different trails and their levels of difficulty. Any further questions will be entertained by the staff in the centre itself.
