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.

For Fun

The remote setting of the North Rim offers a rare opportunity to explore and experience nature at its finest. You can hike, mountain bike, go 4-wheeling, star gaze, raft, ride mules, watch animals and wildlife, take amazing photographs, and so much more.

Close by, 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 stunning pictures. Plus, 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! 

We offer plenty of 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 parks and places of interests.
