Wheelchair Accessibility at the Grand Canyon

There are many ways to see and experience the wonder of the Grand Canyon if you use a wheelchair or walker and in each region – South, North, East and West, there are tours, hotels, trails and viewing areas that assist those in a wheelchair or the slower visitors. As you begin your planning, we highly recommend a new book published by C&C Creative Concepts called, “Barrier-Free Travel; The Grand Canyon for Wheelers and Slow Walkers.” This is an excellent resource with detailed information that will greatly benefit any traveler that needs accessibility, including families with strollers. Some of the topics include:

Details on Accessible Bus and Helicopter Tours
Access at the Grand Canyon Skywalk
Shuttle Bus Routes and Access Details
Special Access Passes and Permits
Photos of Accessible Rooms
Accessible Lodging at the Williams Railway Depot
Windshield Views Throughout the Park

The author of the book is Candy B. Harrington who is considered the “guru of accessible travel” with her 18 years of publishing on this topic. For more information, please read the press release from C&C or purchase the book from Amazon here.

  1. I followed your link and read about this wonderful book.

    Howevery, please watch your language.. wheelchair users are not “wheelchair bound”. We can and do leave them where practicable. We are actually liberated by our wheelchairs, which allow us to go where we wish most of the time.

  2. I’m looking for information for visitors who need to use electric scooters to get around. Is a Grand Canyon visit possible?
