We hiked most of the south rim, catching the odd bus to the next stop along the way. Hermits Trail has got some stunning views as you hike close to the canyon's edge, it seemed to be quiet at this end of the canyon, maybe because its at the very end of the south rim, we loved it here, don't...

This place is perfect for a scenic stop and a quick snack Staff is helpful-Plenty of space to walk around and relax We took the shuttle all morning getting off at each successive stop taking pictures then catching the next bus to the next stop. Busses averaged every 15 minutes and was a perfect fit for our rainy day adventure... More

An incredibly beautiful walk in one of the worlds most stunning areas. Take your time! Enjoy the wildlife as well as the canyon. Try taking an early morning or late evening hike to get different perspectives of the canyon.

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
