We recently popped into Hermits Rest for a well deserved coffee and were very impressed by the lovely little shop. Craig is a real gem, and the hot chocolate was perfect. There is a lovely assortment of jewellery, books and postcards. The roaring fire makes...More
The road had been closed when we first drove by and when we saw it was open we decided to drive up. The overlooks are spectacular! We saw Elk and javelinas! The building has so much charm and the fireplace is spectacular! One of my...More
Very cool hamlet with a snack bar “during tourist season” and nice gift shop. Incredible views with a very nice paved trail to several connecting points. Busses are very frequent along this route so fell free to hike. the paved trail leads to each point...More
After hiking all our "must do" trails we took the shuttle to Hermits Rest. It's okay, nothing special. Even the views were not as good as other parts of the park. They have a snack bar which was very busy. It's only worth visiting if...More

Until November you can only get here by shuttle. The shuttles are fairly regular, but they can and do get so full that you may have two or more pass you by as there is no room. You can get some great views of the...More
To Get to the Hermits Rest we used the Grand Canyon Shuttle service. We thought our visit to the Canyon after Labor Day would mean smaller crowds but such was not the case. We arrived at the Shuttle stop only to get into a long...More

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
