Grand Canyon National Park Superintendent Dave Uberuaga hosted a ribbon cutting for the Tusayan Greenway Trail at the north end of Tusayan in September 2012. This was to celebrate the new trailhead and parking lot located in the Kaibab National Forest. This is just one of several new park facilities that promote healthy outdoor activities. The 100 new parking spaces will serve those using the Tusayan Greenway Trail and those who’d like to use the Tusayan seasonal shuttle into Grand Canyon National Park.
The completion of the Tusayan Greenway brings the trail system to about 18 1/2 miles of bike-able, hike-able, trails on the South Rim.
The Arizona Trail, a system of trails that go from the Mexican border on the south to the Utah border on the north will be enhanced by having a trailhead that is accessible in that same location.
The Tusayan Shuttle service operates Seasonally, so you’ll need to check the operating dates and time period for when you are planning to visit. This is an ideal way to take a Shuttle into the Park and not have to worry about finding those coveted parking spots.
“The public was invited to attend and encouraged to bring their bicycles and ride to the open house at Bright Angel Bicycles. The bicycle ride is a 13-mile round-trip ride.”
