The tour takes place on historic Hermit Road. This road, which is over 100 years old, was recently rehabilitated to preserve its historic integrity and maximize safety and accessibility.
This guided bike tour is a great way to learn more about Grand Canyon. Riding along the historic Hermits Rest Road, originally built by the Santa Fe Railroad, winds along the canyon's rim for miles and boasts some of the grandest views on the South Rim. This is the best scenic ride to do in the west, and the safest for families wanting to explore.
Begin the 3.5 mile tour at Hopi Point, one of the best east- west views of the canyons "inner gorge". Hopi Point is a great place to start a discussion about the ancient peoples of Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona. The canyon has long been a sacred place to these peoples and continues to be into modern times.
After leaving Hopi Point you will ride along breathtaking views that will show just how big this canyon really is.
The guide will tell you about the history and geology of the Grand Canyon as you stop at several uncrowded viewpoints, including Hopi Point, Powell Point, and Trailview Overlook. The ride is leisurely and mostly downhill; you can go at a pace that is comfortable for you. The bike ride finishes at the historic Bright Angel Lodge, a historic building designed by Mary Colter in 1935. Your guide will leave you here with time for gift shopping and more exploring. Your bus will be waiting outside the front door of the Bright Angel Lodge.
Prices include all taxes, tour fees, entrance fees, booking fees and permits.
