Family Fitness Activities
Families of all ages can enjoy time together on a trail at the Grand Canyon. Walk or bike together along the Rim Trail and the Greenway trails. Strollers are welcome on the Rim Trail, which is 13 miles (21 km) of a mostly paved path near/along the rim of the canyon. Strollers are also welcome on the Greenway sections of paved trail that connect the village areas of the South Rim. The park shuttle buses have stops along the Rim Trail for families who want to do only a portion of the trail. A compact stroller is recommended to make it easier to board on/off the shuttles.
