The Hermit Road winds along the Grand Canyon’s south rim for 5.5 -miles and is closed to public vehicle traffic. It boasts many of the grandest views in the park including great river views, and is the best opportunity for cyclists to see a large portion of the rim in a short amount of time. Biking this portion of the South Rim is considered a crown jewel and will leave you and your family counting the days until you can return to ride again. All necessary equipment is included.

What to Expect
For a great scenic bike ride at the Grand Canyon National Park, the Hermit Road Tour is perfect for those wanting to explore the rim by bike and avoid the big crowds.

On this tour, the bike shuttle transports cyclists past the challenging uphill section of the road to begin riding the 5.5-mile flat portion of the road (closed to public traffic) and greenways from Hopi Point to Hermit's Rest. The tour proceeds westward for 5.5 miles (9 km) of low intensity riding; stopping at jaw-dropping lookouts along the way to take in the sights and hear interesting information about the natural and human history of the area.

The tour ends at Hermit’s Rest where you can take your picture with the historic bell that graces the entrance to the 1914 Mary Jane Colter building. The structure was designed to provide shelter, food, and curios for tourists at the end of the West Rim Drive in the early tourism days at Grand Canyon. From Hermit’s rest our shuttle will return you and your bikes to our  base location at the Visitor Center.

Please note: this tour is seasonal and only operates available between March and October.

Such fun!

After being evacuated from our original ride due to lightning, we were quickly rebooked on a ride for the next day. Matt was a knowledgeable, entertaining guide as we made the enjoyable trip out to Hermit’s Rest. We highly recommend Bright Angel!More
