Grand Canyon Trekking

Rubicon Outdoors

MEET: Grand Canyon National Park
VISIT: South Rim, Bright Angel, Indian Garden
LENGTH: 4 days
HIKE RATING: Moderate-Strenuous, 5-7 hours/day, 3000'-5000' elevation gain/loss

This is truly one of the great hikes of the world. More than 16 miles in length with roughly 9,160' of elevation gain and loss in just three days, it is an experience of a lifetime. The first day of hiking begins at around 7,200' above sea level at the South Kaibab Trailhead and finishes at the basement of the Grand Canyon—about 7 miles and more than 4,700' later. Our camp is at Bright Angel Campground along Bright Angel Creek and near the World famous “Phantom Ranch.” The ancient rock surrounding camp, which is the Vishnu Schist, is close to two billion year’s old! We depart the following morning after a hearty breakfast, heading for camp at Indian Gardens Camp-ground. We cross the Colorado River on the silver foot bridge, as our trail winds 4.5 miles along the river trail and up through the “devils corkscrew,” eventually leveling out 1,300' later on the Tonto Plateau and our camp at Indian Gardens. The afternoon is spent relaxing among the Cottonwood trees in anticipation of a 3-mile round trip hike out to Plateau Point just before dinner. The final day takes us up the Bright Angel Trail, gaining more than 3,000' in 4.5 miles, and topping out on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon near the Bright Angel lodge around mid-day.
