We had a wonderful and spectacular tour from Hermit's nest. Had a history and geography lesson of this part of the Canyon.

We did part of the Hermit Trail. Needless to say, given the canyon this trail is challenging. Lots of switchbacks and rocky trail. Very nice views and worth the effort.

Souvenir stop and one of the amazing views at the Grand Canyon Park. Very picturesque and a good stop to rest if needed. Food stand a little pricey. Staff at souvenir store were pleasant and informative.

A lovely spot on the Grand Canyon Rim Trail. For a few months during the winter you can drive there, the remainder of the year take the GC shuttle or long trek. Beautiful Mary Colter building. Great hot chocolate.

My favorite little area in the whole park. The drive over is amazing, with beautiful vistas. The fireplace on a cold day is just what one needs. Little gift shop, with great hiking out behind. I would recommend and will return again.
