A rewarding day hike or backpack to a wooden mesa below the South Rim.

Not many people do this trail. Great trail. Took 2 litres of water and about 1 of Gatorade. Drank it all. Hiked in August. Very hot, leave early to avoid the heat.

Only went down 2.5 miles or so, but still a highly enjoyable trail, very quiet, saw "maybe" 2 other groups of hikers, way more enjoyable that Bright Angel, Also has some pretty good drop offs which we found exciting, would do again!

Challenging! Bring tons of water because you will need it all. We didn't hike the entire trail because we were in a time crunch but I definitely want to return to go all the way.

Favorite hike I've ever done. The Grand Canyon is unmatched.

Would give 6 Sara if possible. Difficult start to the trail, gets a not easier. Recommend hiking down before sunrise to watch it from inside the canyon. Also once you get to the old structure, keep going through the low brush to the awesome outlook points. Highly recommended.
