    Great hike with beautiful scenery. Doesn't take all day and even if your going up, its only a mile with some water stops with shade. Me and my cousin did this on our 4th and last day of a rim2rim2rim hike and it was still pretty easy with worn down muscles and feet. We finished on a weekend so the trail was pretty busy with day hikers. I definitely recommend the 1.5 mile walk out onto the Plateau for a beautiful view of the muddy Colorado River, even if you're tired. Fill up on water and take a camera out there. I feel like the hike down to the plateau could easily be done in one day if you take some snacks and a camelback. Beautiful views and a moderate hike, I'll give it a 5 out of 5. Believe me the walk into the canyon gives you a way better view and a sense of how big it really is. I recommend doing this trail on a weekday to avoid a lot of people.

    Great Hike. One of the more challenging hikes I've done with a 4-5 day pack. This trail has great views and it has a 1.5 mile off-route to Ribbon Falls. Ribbon Falls is deafinately worth the trip even if your tired. I would recommend dropping your pack off in a bush though, to take a load off your legs, but bring your camera and a snack. This trail has a 2 Stretches that are about 5 miles long without water. One is down near the colorado river and the other is up near the rim. If I had one piece of advice for this trail, it is, Don't Underestimate Your Water Consumption!!! The lower 7 or so miles is pretty easy with some ups and downs. The top 5 miles is very rigorous, with never ending switchbacks, especially if it is your 2nd or 3rd day. I also recommend bringing extra snacks and water for other people you meet. Some will look like they're about to die from lack of preparation. If you take your time on this trail you will likely start before light and end after dark, but you should still take breaks. I'll the views a 5 out of 5 and I give the trail a 5 out of 5 because I like a challenge.

    This is a great trail down into the canyon with spectacular views. If you are just doing this trail in one day, I recommend taking it slow. Me and my cousin caught the sunset at the ooh ah point at about a mile or 2 in. To do that you should catch the first bus in the morning to start out. If your planning on doing a 4 or 5 day hike (rim2rim2rim) you should dip your legs in the creek at the campground. That will help with the upcoming days. Overall I give this trail a 5 for views and the lack of people on the trail. Take plenty of water and you'll need 1 meal and a snack most likely for this 1 day hike. There are no water stops on this trail
