    Jennifer Shore reviewed Plateau Point Trail via Bright Angel Trail

    14 days ago

    My boyfriend and I did this hike yesterday and let me tell you it was beautiful but HOT... We are both in our late 20s and have a lot of hiking experience.

    You have two options...wake up at 5 am and get back up before peak heat or what we did (which I would recommend). We started the decent around 11 am, not terrible down and somewhat shady in parts. Bring plenty of water and electrolytes , no need to over pack because there are water refill stations about every 1.5 miles. Indian garden stop at the bottom is a nice shady break from the sun. The hike to plateau point is very flat and only 1.5 miles out but be aware that you are completely exposed in the sun (I was really starting to feel the heat here). Plateau point is absolutely beautiful , completely stunning and SO worth it!! 360 degree views of the canyon and looks right over the Colorado river. On the way back we had lunch in Indian garden and then onto the dreaded hike back up..

    We started the ascent around 3:30 and thankfully were only exposed to the heat for around 30 minutes. The sun hides behind the canyon around 4. Nice and shady hike up to the top with no problems! Just pace yourself, you can do it. Glad we read the reviews and started late because it makes a huge difference being in the shade all the way up. Enjoy!!!
