Hike beneath towering pines, through stands of pinyon-juniper and around yucca and agave as you venture along and below the rim of the Grand Canyon. From your hike along the rim at Hopi Point to the Desert View descent of the Palisades to the South Kaibab Trail, see more of Grand Canyon National Park than you ever imagined. Naturalists provide insight into the canyon’s epic natural and human histories.
