If you only drive : 20 minutes. But you will stop for photos and the visitor center: plan 1 hour - 1 and a half if you have childrens and they do the junior ranger programme.

Depending on the route, 15 - 20 minutes from the strip. Bike Tour: did not take this, but my opinion is that you better be in shape. Remember, it is a desert.
