Hiking, photography, mountain biking, and many off-road 4 wheel drive trails await you. A Grand Canyon sunrise and sunset, with changing light and shadow in the canyon, and enhanced by frequent summer thunderstorms make memorable photos. A hike into the Canyon on the Bright Angel trail is considered one of the most challenging and beautiful in America. For the truly adventurous, hike the full 22 miles through Phantom Ranch, over the Colorado River and on to the South Rim.
The company will provide vans for employee shopping trips and recreation trips on a routine basis at no cost to the employee.
Employee discounts are offered in the Gift Shop, General Store, Dining Room, and Deli.
