Rim to Rim Grand Canyon
Backpacking Rim to Rim in Grand Canyon is a magical experience. Each October and November conditions in the Grand Canyon are ideal for this sort of trip. Dropping off of the North rim on this guided Grand Canyon Rim to Rim backpacking trip we will experience the N. Kaibab trail while hiking surrounded by the fall colors. The hike to the Colorado River from here travels along Bright Angel Creek past yellow Cottonwood trees and emerald green Ribbon Falls, a spectacular side trip that we take along the way. Two options exist while hiking out up the South Rim. Our three day trip, for fit hikers only, involves a full day climb out of the Grand Canyon, while the four day trip allows for a camp to be setup halfway up the South Rim where we are able to watch the sunset from Plateau point before bedding down for the evening, hiking out the following day. It is best to call us by June 1st if interested in October, and July 1st if interested in November as the Grand Canyon quickly books up for these two peak months of the year.
