The West Side Of The Grand Canyon Is One Of Arizona’s Most Underrated Natural Treasures
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is often heralded as the most secluded area in the park, but what about Grand Canyon West? While not officially part of Grand Canyon National Park, this underrated natural treasure showcases a side of the canyon you may have never seen before: the West Rim. Walk across a sky bridge, go ziplining or whitewater rafting, and learn about the rich culture and traditions of the Hualapai people, as the park is located on their land.
