Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) conducted extensive development work at Grand Canyon Village, 1933 to 1937, including resurfacing the Rim Trail from roughly Hermit Road to Yavapai Point. The resurfacing extended far beyond the part of the trail in front of the hotels where the CCC built the well-known rock wall.

The National Park Service’s CCC Walking Tour states that, “During the summer of 1935, the CCC resurfaced the path along the rim … and improved the trail to the east as far as Yavapai Observation Station.”
