Grand Canyon Hiking: Rim to River - Overview

Download Itinerary

This epic hiking adventure takes you into one of the deepest parts of the Grand Canyon with an overnight stay at historic Phantom Ranch. The adventure begins with opportunities to explore Walnut Canyon and Wupatki National Monuments for a glimpse into the ancient past of the local inhabitants. We then spend a restful night at the South Rim in preparation for the invigorating hike into the canyon. The South Kaibab Trail opens our eyes to panoramic vistas that overwhelm our senses as we take in the canyon’s grandeur. At Phantom Ranch we find a relaxing retreat to enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the canyon. The next morning we lace up our hiking shoes again and conquer the Bright Angel Trail for our trek out of the canyon. A well-earned celebratory dinner culminates the hiking adventure. The next day we experience the canyon from above as we hike along the rim before our return to Flagstaff.
