OverviewLocated just steps away from the world-famous Grand Canyon National Park, Hull Cabin is the oldest historic structure in the area. It provides a variety of amenities, as well as access to multiple recreational activities within the Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest. Visitors enjoy miles of trails, fishing at the nearby tanks, sightseeing and viewing the region's abundant wildlife.
The cabin can be accessed by vehicle. A portion of the roadway is graded gravel, requiring slower speeds. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin sits in a secluded meadow surrounded by a stand of old growth ponderosa pine trees, at an elevation of 6,500 feet. The location provides easy access to Grandview Lookout Tower, which offers 360-degree views of the canyon and surrounding forest.
With miles upon miles of national forest and park lands to explore, visitors have no shortage of outdoor activities from which to choose. Hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking are available on an 800-mile segment of the Arizona Trail, as well as within Grand Canyon National Park.
The cabin sleeps up to six people. It consists of a bedroom, living room and a fully equipped kitchen. The bedroom has two sets of twin-sized bunk beds, and there is one queen-sized futon in the living room. Kitchen supplies include indoor plumbing (water is hauled to the site), an oven, stove, refrigerator with freezer, dishes, utensils, pots, pans and some cleaning supplies.
Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim is a must-see for visitors and is located just a mile away. The South Rim is the most accessible part of the park and is open all year. The nearby town of Tusayan also offers restaurants, hotels, gift shops, a general store and various tours.
