Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

I had never been to the Grand Canyon but chose the north rim because it was supposedly less crowded. We were there in late September and that was certainly true. It was amazing to look out onto the canyon and realized everything was completely silent....More

The magnificence of the Grand Canyon becomes evident the moment you look at this view. The colors range from deep reds to almost white in the strata surroundings.

As first-time visitors we thought we had to see both sides...took about 4.5 hours. Be forewarned: not a lot of shops or things to do between the two, although there is a little store in Gap, and the Vermilion Hills were pretty. The lodge near...More

I visited the park in October and while the hotel was closed the gift shop was open. Parking was quite wide open and it was easy to access the viewing points. Do visit the gift shop, lots of fun choices.

We were staying at Zion and decided to make a road trip. Our adult children had never been to the Grand Canyon. We'd only been to the south rim. As someone else said, the north rim IS minus the crowds, although when we went to...More

Just take a look at a map. It's about a 44 mile drive south from Jacob Lake to the main parking lot at the Grand Canyon Lodge. Then a short walk to the rim or through the Lodge to the viewing decks. No rough terrain, but... More
