    Grand Canyon South Rim

    Wife and I are going to be riding on the South Rim tomorrow, I know late to be asking. We have both our road bikes with us and my Mtn Bike, she is a roadie and a very very beginner Mtn Biker, I could rent her a mtn bike for the day or we can both ride our road bikes. Any suggestions?

    If you want to get her on some trail the section of AZ trail near the S. Rim is pretty benign easy cruising through forest. After 3 miles or so you get to a nice viewpoint overlooking Gray Mountain or thereabouts and a good turn around spot. An easy access is near the fire watchtower just south of Grandview Point.

    Otherwise, the road bikes out to Hermit's Rest won't have the same traffic as the S. Rim road.
