Imagine a system of biking and pedestrian trails at Grand Canyon, linking major points of interest throughout the park, and opening up miles and miles of spectacular vistas along both the South and North Rims. Such a trail system is now a reality, and it's called the Grand Canyon Greenway.
Thanks to the success of public/private partnership, the first two segments of the Grand Canyon Greenway on the South Rim are now open to the public. More funding is needed, however, to continue with planning and construction of future Greenway trail segments. We need your help!

The multi-year Grand Canyon Greenway trail project will create a system of 73 miles of handicapped-accessible bicycle and pedestrian trails on both the South and North Rims. The Greenway will allow visitors to explore more areas along the canyon rim on foot, by bicycle, in a wheelchair, and (in some areas only) on horseback. It will transform the Grand Canyon from a series of overcrowded parking lots teaming with cars to a place where people have greater freedom to explore the area on their own terms, under their own power. The solitude, serenity, and natural quiet of the canyon will be restored, and visitors will enjoy a greatly enhanced, more profound experience.
Overcrowding? Traffic congestion? The Greenway offers a solution to improve the visitor experience.
With your help, the Grand Canyon Greenway will serve as a visionary model for all national parks in America, setting a new standard for resource protection, visitor use, and stewardship. Visit our Giving Page if you would like to make a donation to support the Greenway.
