Walking For Fitness
Walking Grand Canyon trails can provide an excellent source of fitness while allowing you to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and views of the canyon. People of all ages may enjoy walks along the scenic Rim Trail on the South Rim of the canyon. This trail offers views from many different vantage points and connects with many points of interest within the park. The Rim Trail offers the easiest walking in the Grand Canyon and is a good option for all ages, including those with young children.
Walking along the Rim Trail is excellent choice, offering almost everyone the option to get some exercise while taking in the scenery. The trail goes from the Grand Canyon Visitor Center west to Hermits Rest. The Rim Trail is approximately 13 miles in length and is partially paved, from the Mather Point to Powell Point. The paved sections of the trail are mostly wheelchair accessible. The unpaved portion of the trail, between Powell Point and Monument Creek Vista is narrow and close to the edge. Restrooms are available along the Rim Trail.
