I rode the shuttle and stopped at a few overlooks and walked some along the way to Hermit's rest. Nice gift shop and it has a gorgeous and large fireplace! Small snack shop but not much seating. A couple pay to look telescopes that I...More

Take the red line from the village for more unique/spectacular views from up to 9 vantage points going west (note: the return shuttle only stops @3 of the 9 stops, so choose wisely and just get off the bus). Busses run every 10-15 mins, so...More

Worth the 80 min round trip without stopping trip. Views are amazing. Visitor center/ gift shop has special items not seen anywhere else in park. Great history with the huge huge fireplace being the center of center. Nice hikes beyond center. Views of the Colorado...More

This is the last stop on the free shuttle tour. There is a snack bar and a pretty cool gift shop at this stop.

One of few stops along red route with toilet facilities and food options plus a small souvenir shop. Good place for a rest, sit down and have a snack while enjoying spectacular view of the canyon.

A unique place and the end of the road. Building is small but beautiful, the huge fire place is a must for photos. Gift shop offers good coffee and other snacks.

Every view of the Grand Canyon is spectacular but this isn’t one of the best. The building is quirky and interesting though. It features a huge wood fireplace as big as a small room. It’s got a gift shop with things I didn’t see anywhere...More

Take the Red Bus up to this stop. Visit the Hermit's Cabin, which is a shop now, but worth the visit. Interesting fun trail.,

yes, it would be a good idea. The shuttle going back takes about 45 mins because the route has more stops on the way back. There are a lot of vista points along the way. You will have a good look at the Colorado River... More
