"Deep Time"

Geologists concur that it took nearly 60-million years for the Grand Canyon to come into existence as we see it today. However, the oldest rocks into which the mighty Colorado River has cut into are approximately 1.4-billion to 1.8-billion years old. Visitors can take the Trail of Time beginning at the Yavapai Geological Museum and witness the timeline of rocks, from the youngest Kaibab Limestone upon which you walk at 260-million years old to the oldest Vishnu Schist as the basement rock. Along the entire route to Verkamp's Visitors Center, the trail provides spectacular views and plenty of education. It's a definite must-see attraction while you are in Grand Canyon Village.
