Why walk to the Grand Canyon 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.
