The Grand Canyon National Park (3)

Informations and Guides are not to be ignored on both of the rims. There are ranger-guided activities where park rangers offer walks, talks and evening programs.

Some Safety Tips:

  • During summer, watch out for possible thunderstorms. Stay away from the rim and open areas when lightning occurs. Seek shelter.
  • Always stay away from cliffs and stay on trails.
  • All pets must be on leash. They are only permitted in developed areas above the rim, but not on the shuttle buses.
  • Mountain bikes and other vehicles are only restricted on maintained roads.
  • When hiking, carry food and water, wear sun protection and appropriate clothings and footwears.
  • Hiking to the river and back in one day is NOT recommended. You'll wear yourself out.
  • No animal feeding for deer, squirrels, etc. It's illegal.
