Your guide will take you through a colorful history of geology, plant life and human history along the way. They will also introduce you to some of the Canyon’s wildlife which is commonly seen in this area. Fingers crossed you will potentially see an Elk or Mule deer. The California Condor loves this part of the rim and is often sighted soaring above the depths. This tour is great for all ages and ability levels. Kids love it but we encourage them to be old enough to have patience with 10 minute stops for interpretation.
NOTE* Children are permitted on the bike tours. We charge by height. Any youth or child over 5 feet tall will be considered an adult price. Please be mindful that these tours include other guests. Children should be able to have capacity to listen to interpretive pieces by guides, keep up with general pace of group riding and be obedient to safety instruction and remain in control at all times during the ride.

Can you rent an e-bike for a tour?
No, e-bikes are currently not authorized by NPS for tours.
Are there a lot of uphills on Hermit Road Tour?
This route bypasses the very steep sections and has only mild inclines and declines. There is a small section which is too strenuous for some to pedal, and guides with accommodate a slower walking pace through this area to help if needed.
What’s different about the Hermit and Yaki Tour?
The Yaki tour departs right from the shop so it takes less time. It is more greenway riding and Canyon vistas. There is generally more interaction with people on this route. The Hermit Road tour requires a shuttle and goes to a more remote area of the Park so it takes more time. There are views of the Colorado River and more terrain variety on the Hermit Road tour as well.
We always recommend reservations whenever possible. Walk-up availability is on a first-come-first-serve basis and is on a weather-dependent basis in the winter months.
