Top 3 Things to Do at Grand Canyon National Park

1. Hike Down the Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park, and the greater Grand Canyon region, is a hiker's dream. Most of Grand Canyon National Park is undeveloped backcountry. There are literally hundreds of miles to hike, backpack and explore. Despite the Grand Canyon's popularity and numbers of visitors each year, visitors only need to hike a small distance to enjoy some solitude.

2. Ride a Mule

Explore the depths of the Grand Canyon National Park on popular trails like the Bright Angel and South Kaibab trail on a mule. A Grand Canyon mule ride is an adventure and easy on your legs.

3. Raft the Colorado River

One of the most exciting ways to experience the Grand Canyon is to float through it by way of raft on the Colorado River. Most people book their trip with a commercial outfitter and you can even combine the rafting trip with a helicopter ride. Experienced whitewater rafter? Enter the lottery to do your own trip.
