So we biked from the bike shop to Hermit’s Rest. It was about 10 miles total if u ride entire way up there. Two of us biked from the transfer point to the Hopi stop and two took the shuttle bus. You can only get a max of THREE bikes on per shuttle so if u have more then that U will need two shuttle buses. They run every 10-15 mins. There is a 6% grade from transfer point to Hopi and it goes for about two miles. It’s not uphill entire way but for a good part of it. I had to stop twice to walk for a bit to catch my breath and give my legs a rest but my son and I made it. We also took the shuttle bus from Hermit’s Rest to Powell Point on way down as there is a lot of uphill between those points. Note there r less stops on the way down and Hopi is NOT one of them. We rode the remaining almost 6 miles from Powell Point back to the bike shop. The last 2-3 miles is deceptively uphill and was a bit tough at the end of the riding we had already done If u want to do other bike trail to opposite side of the park I’d highly suggest taking shuttle all the way back. We loved being able to stop where we wanted and not being on the shuttle buses for it. So my suggestion - make ur rental reservation early, get e bikes and u will be able to easily ride all the bike trails Hermit’s Rest to I believe Yaki Point . FYI tho u can NOT put the e bikes on the shuttles. Ok onto why I gave them only 3 stars. Communication is AWFUL. I called the bike shop TWICE to ask about upgrading to E bikes. I was told TWICE no big deal - we can do a walk up reservation. First person I spoke to put a note in our regular bike reservation that we wanted e bikes. Well we arrived at like 745 (they open at 8am) We were first in line. Well they let anyone that booked a tour that uses the 830 shuttle to Hermits Rest in front of u. Ok no big deal - I understand they have to make a shuttle bus. Then we were told oh we don’t do walk up rentals till 9am. We can give u regular bikes now which is what we had reservation for and u can come back later for e bikes. So just a heads up about that if u plan to do walk ups. I’d guess it would be the same for regular bikes too. U may want to confirm that so u r not frustrated day of. If this had been communicated well in the two phone convos I had we would have been less frustrated and made plans for some stuff to do close to the visitors center before we went to get our bikes. Per manager they hold bikes backs for walk ups but they don’t seem to know if they will have enough bikes for the people who made reservations so they won’t do walk up rentals before 9am. I suggest calling to confirm if u want to do a walk up. Pick up and drop off was pretty organized tho. And quick. They give a good explanation/demonstration of how to use the bike racks on the shuttle And shuttle drivers r able to explain it as well if need be. Be aware if using AT&T u will have intermittent cell service.

We rented four of the E Bikes, and trekked up to Hermit’s rest. For someone that’s not an avid biker, I definitely recommend the E Bike for the up hill portions of this route. Great way to see the canyon! Plenty of places to pull over and take a break and see the views. Be sure and take some water for the ride. Would also recommend sunscreen and chapstick. It’s about a 20 mile trip from Bright Angel to Hermit’s rest and back. We started at about 10:30 and returned around 3:30. They also provide locks for the bikes, if you want to stop and do some exploring on foot. The only negatives were, the maps provided are not very detailed for getting from the bike shop to Hermits Rd., and I purchased the water bottles, but the bikes didn’t holders for them. We had a great time, and would definitely recommend!

My son brought his bike and I rented one from Bright Angel Bike Rentals. We started from the Visitors Center and rode to Hermits Rest. At the suggestion of another reviewer, we bought a sandwich at the cafe and at Hopi point, we enjoyed the view and the sandwich. It was a magical day! Thanks for the fun memories!
