Both my wife and I visited Hermit's Rest in the late 60s and early 70s (we didn't know each other at the time). Little has changed and Hermit's Rest, which I believe was one of the first overviews in the park, is the last stop...More

Hermit's Rest doesn't have the best Canyon views, however it does have a snack bar and gift shop. It is also one of the few stops on the red route with restrooms.
