My favorite hike on the planet. This was our 2nd time in the Canyon and worth every mile and hour to get there and get it done. We stretched it to 4 days staying at Bright Angel the 1st and 3rd nights and Cotton wood the 3rd. 1st day late start to Bright Angel, 2nd to Cottonwood, 3rd Cottonwood to north rim and back to Cottonwood and unfortunately on the 4th from Bright Angle back to the truck. By far, the most difficult and most enjoyable hike to date. Around every corner there is something else beautiful to enjoy and take a pic of. By far the 3rd day was longer and most difficult climbing out of the north rim and dropping back in to and from Cottonwood. We paused to have a pizza and a cold one on the North Rim. The permits for the canyon are definitely a hassle but don't let it stop you. I would definitely like to go back and spend 7-10 days on a longer hike.
