When most people envision the Grand Canyon, images of its South Rim come to mind. After Wall, the South Rim is the most photographed part of the Canyon, and calendars, postcards, and magazine articles have planted its panoramas in our minds. The vast majority of park visitors come to the South Rim for ample reasons. A more challenging out-and-back day hike below the South Rim leads to an aptly named spring. From Mar 1 through Nov 30, Hermit Road is closed to private vehicles. During this time a free shuttle bus offers access to Hermits Rest every 15 and 30 minutes from about 5:15 a.m. to sunset every day. You can board the shuttle bus at Hermits Rest Transfer shuttle bus stop.
