“Well worth the bus ride”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

In order to get to the Hermit Trail, you have to ride the shuttle bus for a good distance. It's worth it. Along the way, you get to see the grand canyon from a variety of view points.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We visited the park in February, and were told (incorrectly, by park rangers no less) that the Hermit Trail was closed to private cars. We were then instructed to take a certain park shuttle bus to get there; but when asked, the driver said they didn't go there.

We were saved by fellow visitors who gave us correct info, and that saved the trip for us. The trail was indeed open to cars and we ended up driving the 8-mile trail twice. There are several pullover points to get out at and overlook the canyon. Of course, they get especially busy around sunset, so go early and pick your favorite vista.

I was a little worried seeing the Grand Canyon because of my knees but the hermit trail is so user friendly it made for a wonderful experience and all the views were easily accessible and enjoyable.

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This was my favorite of the trails. You can drive and / or walk. Pay attention, and you are likely to see wildlife. Pima point boasts the sound of the roaring Colorado river below if you are quiet enough.
