Grand Canyon National Park


A powerful and inspiring landscape, the Grand Canyon overwhelms our senses through its immense size. Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and a mile deep.

The beauty of the Grand Canyon, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, is like nothing else you will ever experience. Each season of the year provides a unique vista.

Grand Canyon National Park is the United States' 15th oldest national park and is located in northwest Arizona. Within the park lies the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River, considered to be one of the Wonders of the World.

The park covers 1,217,403 acres of unincorporated area in Coconino and Mohave counties. The Grand Canyon divides Mohave County into two parts with an impassable gorge which no road crosses. Over 50% of the Grand Canyon National Park is in Mohave County!

Nearly five million people see the Grand Canyon each year. Most of them see it from overlooks along the South Rim which is the most accessible part of the park. These include Grand Canyon Village, Hermits Rest, and Desert View. The South Rim is the most accessible part of the park and is open all year.
