On February 26, 2019, the Grand Canyon National Park celebrated 100 years since it's designation as a national park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Grand Canyon National Park welcomes approximately six million domestic and international visitors each year. After 100 years, whether its hiking a corridor trail, taking a stroll on the rim or enjoying the landscape from an overlook, the park continues to provide a space for all visitors to connect with the outdoors.
