Getting to Grand Canyon National Park
Driving to Grand Canyon
There are two main areas to visit at Grand Canyon, the North Rim and the South Rim. It is nearly a five hour drive in between them. To reach the South Rim, travel 60 miles north on AZ-64 from I-40 in the city of Williams. The North Rim is in a very remote area far from developed areas. From Kanab, Utah, take Alt US-89 south for 36 miles, and then AZ-67 south for 43 miles. This is about a two hour drive to reach the rim.
If you’d like to plot directions from your location use the interactive map below. The marker shows the location of the South Rim Visitor Center in Grand Canyon.

Official Park Map
Below is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Grand Canyon Trail Map.
