Getting Here and Getting Around

Team members may drive to the Grand Canyon North Rim or access the property by a combination of air and shuttle service.

By Car: Main driving access is either via North/South Interstate 15 between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City or East/West Interstate 40 between Los Angeles and Albuquerque. 

By Air and Shuttle: It is best to fly into Las Vegas and then take a Greyhound Bus or the St. George Shuttle to St. George, UT.

We provide free shuttle service from St. George, UT with advance reservations through Human Resources.

This service is generally provided with pick-ups by no later than 2 pm Utah Time. We do make a shopping stop along the way to the North Rim. 

A vehicle is not a necessity at the North Rim but it is a convenience. There is a no-cost employee shuttle service from the housing area to the work areas. And we do provide opportunities for scenic outings as well as shopping.

For Fun

The remote setting of the North Rim offers a rare opportunity to explore and experience nature at its finest. Hiking, mountain biking, 4-wheeling, star gazing, rafting, mule riding, animal watching, photography…..the North Rim has it all.

The Bright Angel Trail is considered one of the most challenging and beautiful hikes in North America. The full 22 mile hike travels down the canyon to Phantom Ranch, crosses the Colorado River and climbs up the canyon to the South Rim. Many less challenging, scenic trails are available or there are opportunities to explore the canyon on a mule or back roads in a vehicle.

Sunrises and sunsets at the North Rim are magnificent and the changing light and shadows in the canyon create opportunities for unique photographs. And don’t forget the amazing animals: the Kaibab Squirrel is only found around the North Rim offering the opportunity to check viewing one of these quirky creatures off your “bucket list”. 

As a company, the North Rim offers planned recreational opportunities such as team sports, holiday celebrations, arts and crafts, games, yoga, music and movie events as well as outings and trips to other National Parks and places of interests.
