    Benjamin Grassi saved Tom's Thumb Trail

    Benjamin Grassi reviewed South Kaibab to Phantom Ranch to Bright Angel Trail

    Easily one of the best, most difficult trails I have ever done. Start as early as possible and get down quickly without tiring yourself out. We started at 6:30 and hit the black bridge at 9:30. Averaged a good pace of almost 3mph. Just over the black bridge is your first water source. Head to phantom ranch to rest and drink lemonade. Before you head back across the silver bridge up bright angel. Soak your shirt, hat, anything in the water spout. Hiking up to Indian garden is long but just has a moderate incline. Keep soaking your clothes in the streams you pass. At Indian garden you have another drinkable water station. Here is where the hike pours on the suck. You have water every mile and a half from Indian garden, but the incline and switchbacks get really tough. We made it up in just under 11 hours. Bring lots of salty snacks and Gatorade or Nuun tablets to replace electrolytes. Bring trekking poles for sure as well as a hat and something to put on your neck like a bandana that can be soaked. We were fortunate with the weather on September 1st. Light rain and thunderstorm showers kept the sun away. I would not hike this in the summer ever! Make sure you train for this one. My legs didn’t start hurting until the last mile and a half. Just keep moving and keep your energy up! Drink water every 5-10 minutes to avoid dehydration. If you are thirsty you already are dehydrated.

    Pretty good hike that has some scrambling, incline and decent mileage. Biggest problem is that the trail is not well marked at all! Follow all trails!
