Where is Grand Canyon?
Grand Canyon is in the northwest corner of Arizona, close to the borders of Utah and Nevada.
Why is the park separated into
A 277 mile long (446 km) canyon separates the park into South and North Rims. The Grand Canyon of the Colorado River is a mile-deep, (1.6 km) and creates a barrier that bisects the park. Even though the average distance across the canyon is only 10 miles/ 16 km, be aware that it is a five-hour drive of 220 miles/ 354 km between the park's South Rim Village and the North Rim Village.
How Do I Travel to the South Rim?
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is Open All Year and is located on the "Arizona" side of the Canyon. The South Rim receives 90% of the park's visitation.
South Rim Visitor Center: 36°03'32"N 112°06'33"W
The North Rim of the park is more remote, and harder to get to.
