It’s just 6.5 miles from Tusayan, AZ for bicycling into Grand Canyon National Park on the New Greenway.
The National Park Service completed this greenway to provide a healthy outdoor activity to park visitors and another means of access to the Park. A ribbon cutting ceremony on September 12, 2012 was held at the new parking lot on the Kaibab National Forest just north of Tusayan, Arizona. This new parking lot has 100 new spaces for visitors to the Canyon.
Superintendent Uberauga then rode his bike the 6.5 miles to the Bright Angel Bicycles concession at the National Park’s Visitor Center. Bright Angel Bicycles also offers a Grab & Go food service for the Visitor Center area.
According to Superintendent Uberuaga, the event and the three new facilities were all about connections — connections between the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service, the park and the community of Tusayan, Arizona.
This new Greenway will provide a healthy, fun and exciting way to experience the Grand Canyon. For those with bicycles, simply bring you own…but if you’d like to rent, be sure you contact Bright Angel Bicycles at 928-814-8704.
