The park service needs to increase enforcement of rule against feeding animals, trampling on seedlings, and blocking pathways of others.

On our second day we walked along the Rim Trail.....great views....but plenty of people too. Most of the visitors are well equipped and in good sprit...helpful with taking pictures for us. Bus system between various view points is extremely well organised by the National Park.

We're a bit too out of shape to hike to the bottom of the canyon, but we thoroughly enjoyed walking along the rim trail. The views are fantastic!

Of course this is gorgeous! Any area overlooking the canyon is amazing. A must do if you are at the south rim.

The easiest of trails to follow with the best views. Lots of places to sit quietly and watch the canyon change its colors minute by minute.

It is just hard to comprehend and take it all in! Incredible views, well maintained trails and great National Park. Clean and taking the electric buses back to main entrance and parking was nice.

One of many trails in the Grand Canyon. If you ask, which one is the best, I do not know. Each one of them is somewhat different. Some are easier, some are more difficult. Each offers unique perspective on the canyon. I strongly suggest to...More

You might try taking the red shuttle along Hermit’s Road. It’s a long ride with lots of stops. You can look at the map as you ride and see how far it is to the next stop. Then you and the kids can get out at any stop that... More

I’ve done the walk as a tour guide many, many times. It’s the perfect walk for people of all ages and fitness. It could be an hour. It could be two. It just depends how often people are stopping to check things out. And it... More
