@grandcanyonNGVC www.explorethecanyon.com The South Rim
This is the starting point for most visitors. Entry into the South Rim can be made either along US 180 from Flagstaff and the south or AZ 64 from Williams and the west. There’s a line up accommodation options, a nearby airport, several dining spots, a bustling Tusayan Village, a word famous IMAX theatre and several large RV campsites.
@grandcanyonNGVC www.explorethecanyon.com The North Rim
The North Rim is the more rugged of the two & offers pristine & unadulterated view of the Grand Canyon’s wilderness.The journey from the south rim to the north rim is very scenic & takes about 5 hours & is 215 miles long. Being higher in elevation than its southern counterpart, the Grand Canyon North Rim is much cooler.

Several trailheads which start in the North and South Rims lead directly to the Inner Canyon. No Grand Canyon Adventure is complete without a hike into the Inner Canyon which is 4,700 feet below the South Rim & 5,700 feet below the North Rim. Phantom Ranch. Photo under the Creative Commons NPS.
