Choose which side of The Grand Canyon you want to visit. The South Rim will connect to the most park services available but keep in mind that this area will have a large amount of tourists. On the other hand, the North Rim offers a secluded environment at higher elevations. If you have an interest in the North Rim, plan your trip between the middle of May to mid October. It will only be accessible at those times since snowfall starts earlier in the season compared to the South Rim.
