Park and Walk. It's that Simple.

You put miles on your RV to get here. Fortunately, it's only about a mile walk to the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Simply follow the Greenway Trail to the Visitor Center, and enjoy the view.

You can also walk to the rim from a trail that begins at park headquarters, located across the street from Yavapai Lodge.

Why walk to the South Rim?

During peak times, especially the summer, the South Rim gets crowded. That makes parking at many of the park's visitor centers and overlooks difficult. By walking, you have one less thing to worry about. Once you get to the South Rim you can walk the Rim Trail or even take the shuttle bus to other points around the rim.

Tip: Try to see the sunrise and sunset from the canyon rim at least once during your stay.
