I hiked the Hermit trail in mid-September and encountered maybe 4-5 other people...which is amazing for the south rim. The hike is very strenuous because the trail is covered with shale and not paved like Bright Angel or South Kaibab. However, for those willing to make the 5 mile round trip hike from the trail head down to Santa Maria Spring - it's absolutely worthwhile because this part of the canyon looks completely different than mid/east canyon. There's also a cool little covered shelter that includes a rocking chair & a bench. Good to know if you get stuck.
