    This is well worth the moderately easy trek...it is a unique piece of history and is the vision of an incredible woman, architect Mary Colter (around 1914), who captured the spirit of the Canyon and i...  more »

    Very nice experience even if the weather wasn't splendid (gray by mid-morning, then thinned, orange in the late afternoon). From Tusayan, we took the shuttle that takes us in 20 minutes to the Visitor Center (careful, you must have your Pass America to the rise of the bus). Our goal was to make the Hermits Road. So we boarded a second and then a third bus, the last being the one that crosses the rock wall and the different points of view. So you stop at each point of view for photos and then you have two options: wait for the next shuttle (every 15 minutes) or so to follow a trail that leads you to the following point of view. We used both as the bus, air-conditioned, was quite significant... It takes about 2 hours for this circuit. There is another circuit, shorter, in contrast to the previous one, also served by a shuttle and which is also very pretty. Finally, don't hesitate not to wait until the end of the day, and go, this time by car, to Desert View to admire the sunset. Splendid.

    Path that is worth worth stopping at various sights (10 including Hermit's Point) using the free shuttle bus service (red line) made available for park visitors, and which stops in the direction of Hermit's Point, in all the sights while, send back towards Village, only in the four main points (shown inside the bus and communicated by the friendly and talkative drivers). The visit, made calmly, can last from 3 to 4 hours (also making a stop at Hermit's Point equipped with pit toilets new and clean, drinking fountains with drinking water to fill the water bottle, a curio shop with adjoining Café "snack bar" dessert and very rustic!
