Grand Canyon South Rim

The South Rim is open year-round and ideal for first time visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park; especially if you are traveling with children.

The busiest time of year is during the summer months.

If you want to avoid crowds, visit Grand Canyon National Park during the winter months (November through February).

Lodging at the Grand Canyon Village is booked well in advance, especially during the summer months. Be sure to make reservations as far ahead as possible.

Grand Canyon North Rim

The North Rim is open seasonally from May 15th to October 15th.

The Grand Canyon Lodge provides the only lodging inside the National Park on the North Rim.

Mule Rides are available to Supai Tunnel and to Uncle Jimmy Owens point. North Kaibab Trail is a popular spot for self-guided hiking.

Grand Canyon East

The Grand Canyon East, is also known as “Desert View”, is a part of the South Rim.

There is a separate entrance and visitor area that contains a campground, picnic area, restrooms, parking lot, restaurant, gas station, Trading Post, Market Place, and Visitor Center.

The Desert View East Rim is ideal if you are limited on time or if you want to avoid the crowds typical at the Grand Canyon Village.
