Last point on the bus/bike tour of Grand Canyon. Good place to rest, empty your system and refill :). The arch with the bell make good been-there-done-that photo op. We were there by evening as the sun was setting and the long shadows on the canyon with scattered clouds in the sky looked picture-perfect

Not even our wonderful children can take away from our experience on the Hermit Trail seeing the different views of the Canyon. However, they are 4 and 7. They have small bladders and no ability to hold on for a long time. The 4 is a little girl. Just know, bathrooms are hard to find on the Hermit Trail. There... More

Hermit Trail is long and especially gorgeous in the later time of day as its on the West side of the Rim. We went to Pima Point to see the sunset, but one could stop at either of the points and get a great view of the sunset. This distances between some points can be long, but the views are... More

a great end to a bike tour we went on and at the end there was a huge raven hanging out on a tree just flirting with the kids. It jumped onto the rock right next to them & just sat there. The tour guides from Bright Angel Bikes told us all about these birds. What a cool experience!

We took the bus out to Hermit Trail and it was beautiful. However, the snack bar does not offer much, so it would be best to pack a sandwich with you if it's lunch time.

This is the least maintained of the larger trails at the canyon, and we decided to hike it because we knew it would have much less foot traffic. We were right :), and it made for a lovely day hike. A few pointers - to get here you must take the bus all the way out to Hermit's Rest, then... More

We took the red shuttle to Hermits rest stopping several times to visit view points and walking between a few of the stops on the rim trail. My 15 year old son walked almost all of the 8 miles listening to music and loving the environment.

Hiked Grandview and Hermit. Both are great - needless to say - it is the GRAND Canyon after all! :) Hermit was more fun and prettier in my opinion. It was more rock scrambling and more scenic. We went to Santa Maria and back in about 5 hours. It was great1
