Explore the Gorge with a Guide

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 until Sunday, September 17, 2017

Tours will be 7 days a week and 10:00am and 1:00pm

This 1 mile hike will cover park history, geology, natural history and more. Learn how old the rocks are, who built the trails and how the gorge was formed! The tour ends at Mile Point Bridge and from there you can continue to the end of the Gorge Trail or use one of the Rim Trails to return to where you started.

Due to this year's construction at the Main Entrance please meet at the bottom of Couch's Staircase.
From the Main Entrance: go through the entrance tunnel, across Sentry Bridge and up the first set of stairs.
From the South Pavilion: follow the South Rim Trail to the right of the building (toward the Main Entrance), go down the stairs and meet at the bottom.

No registration required.
