Biking in Grand Canyon National Park or biking to go between Tusayan and the National Park is another great way to enjoy and see the beauty of our outdoors and the Canyon. You can choose to bring your own bikes or rent once you are here.
The Grand Canyon Greenway Trail starts in Tusayan behind the IMAX Theater and will take you all the way to the Visitor Center in Grand Canyon National Park. The route, 13.1 miles round trip, is paved almost all the way and works for all skill levels with a gentle incline and plenty of shade. No water is available on this trail, so be sure to take enough.
The Grand Canyon Greenway Trail is open for walking, running and biking year round. You can enjoy the vegetation of the Kaibab National Forest and some of the wildlife along the route. Go to www.10adventures.com to find more photos and information on the trail.
Memorial Day thru Labor Day the National Park Service offers free shuttles between Tusayan and the Visitor Center in the Park and the busses can accommodate 2 or 3 bikes, so if you want to bike one way and shuttle the other way you have this option. They do not take tag alongs, baby trailers or children’s bikes with wheels less than 16” and you are required to load and unload your own bike.
We do recommend you let us know if you are bringing your bikes so we make sure you are in a room easy for coming and going. You can book your room or just let us know you are bringing your bikes at 928-638-2414 or 800-538-2345.
