Cruiser Bike Rides & Routes
The most popular route for rides at Grand Canyon is the Hermit Road or Yellow Route which takes visitors from the the Park rental facility, through the village and up to a road which is closed to public traffic. The Hermit road offers the best river and rapid views and is a combination of paved road and greenway riding. It does have a one mile stretch of incline so you should be in shape for this ride. For a shorter version of this route that bypasses the hills and town navigating and is ideal for families or those with less time, try Bright Angel Bikes "Red Route" where you use a shuttle to drop you off at Hopi Point. The Yaki trail which departs directly from the visitor center offers a 7 miles round-trip bike ride that weaves close to the rim and guarantees spectacular views in a short amount of time. See Bright Angel Bicycle's map to get a better picture of the different routes you can choose.
