The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Escape the urban bustle at Navajo Bridge and North Kaibab Trail. Explore hidden gems such as Lipan Point and East Rim Drive. Venture out of the city with trips to Supai (Mooney Falls & Navajo Falls) and Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway (in Marble Canyon). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Kolb Studio, get great views at Yaki Point, admire the striking features of Grand Canyon Railway Depot, and explore the stunning scenery at Moran Point.
