Your visit and rest here is part of a long tradition started in 1914 with the opening of Hermits Rest. After an 8-mile (13 km) buggy ride, you would be greeted by the resident caretaker and offered a refreshing drink to clear the dust from your throat. The smell of mules nearby may have filled the air and smoke wafted a pleasant scent from the stone fireplace. After a short walk you would return to El Tovar, or ride a mule the 7.5 miles (12 km) to Hermit Camp for a delightful meal and restful sleep.
