Hike Details

Friday’s hike is more advanced. This is a 22.7-mile hike (9.7 miles down, 13.0 miles up) starting at an elevation of 6782 ft. at the South Bright Angel trail with a 4263-ft. descent. You will finish with a 5412-ft. ascent up the North Kaibab Trail, ending at an elevation of 8180 feet. (The quick altitude increase due to the steeper ascent makes this a more challenging hike.) The south to north rim hike is known for its beautiful colors and glorious rock formations as you ascend the north canyon wall! This is a breath-taking hike and it’s our most popular!

Saturday’s hike is less advanced. This is a 22.7-mile hike (13.0 miles down, 9.7 miles up) starting the North Kaibab Trail (elevation 8180 feet) with a 5412-ft. descent. You will then ascend 4263 ft. up the South Bright Angel Trail, finishing at 6782 feet in elevation. This hike is known for its beautiful views from the north wall as you hike down along the winding river bed to the valley floor where the historic Phantom Ranch is found. Once you cross the Colorado River you will begin the majestic climb, tucked in the cleft of the rocks, up the South Bright Angel trail. Less experienced hikers would say that rim to rim, north to south, is the way to go!
