HOW HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE IS THE GRAND CANYON?

Since the Grand Canyon National Park was opened and considering many facilities are historic, the National Park Service has gone to great lengths to ensure that the site is accessible to all.

The Grand Canyon visitors’ center and many other sites are handicap accessible, as is the Grand Canyon Railroad. Whilst the terrain of the Canyon is rugged and rocky and hence not suitable for wheelchairs, the trek along the rim is (see accessibility guide). Shuttlebuses in the park are also wheelchair accessible and have the following:

 

  • Ramps and space to carry passengers in wheelchairs. NB: wheelchairs larger than 30 " wide x 48 " long (76 by 122 mm) will not fit on shuttle buses. Most motorized scooters cannot be accommodated on buses due to size but strollers are generally accepted.

  • A Scenic Drive Accessibility Permit is available at entrance gates to allow entry for visitors with mobility issues to some areas along the rim otherwise closed to pubic traffic. Designated handicap parking spaces can only be used with a state-issued parking pass, not just the Accessibility Permit.
