Hermit Road open to private vehicles, allowing visitors a unique trip to the rim

The western expanse of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim is incredibly well-traveled, thanks to a free, efficient shuttle system and a very walkable paved Rim Trail. And while the area is hectic and crowded with travelers taking selfies and family photos, winter offers a more secluded opportunity to journey to Mary Colter’s signature Hermit’s Rest.
