Tips for Families

The South Rim is the most popular area to visit; the North Rim is much less built up and closed during winter months. Make sure you enter the park from the correct side; it takes five hours to drive from the South Rim Village to the North Rim Village. Thanks to the huge variation of altitude through the canyon, temperatures can shift vastly throughout the day, so dress accordingly. Finally, pack lots of water; the climate is dry and the elevation makes dehydration common during a hike.

Tips for Families

I wouldn't recommend hiking down the canyon with little ones though. My son was 8 months and in a back pack so it wasnt too bad. but there are no side rails or anything and it's quite dangerous.

Consider arranging your trip through a travel company rather than attempting to navigate on your own. The park is HUGE. Definitely plan for more than one day.
