    Mr Mc18 reviewed South Kaibab Trail to Ooh Aah Point

    22 days ago

    We did this hike and loved it!!! You do not have to be an experienced hiker to complete this hike, but at the same time, this hike is not for the feint hearted, there are plenty of places where the trail gets narrow to one pass at a time. If you take your time and have good hiking boots, no problem.
    I would not do this hike with little kids and flip flops. The hike opens (and closes) with a two series of steep switchbacks, after that it levels out as it goes out to the point.
    Once at the point, you see that all the effort was worth it. The views are amazing and if you go out to the rocks on the point you get about a 300 degree view of the canyon in all of its splendor. You feel like it is surrounding you.
    The return hike is tough, but plenty of places to rest and enough water will get you through it

    Mr Mc18 reviewed 1.5 Mile Resthouse via Bright Angel Trail

    22 days ago

    It’s the Grand Canyon, so it has to be 5 stars. This is the easiest trail to do if you want to go “in the canyon”. When we were on it, there were many families, including kids.
    As stated, it follows the Bright Angel Trail to the 1 1/2 mile house, which is simply a shelter. The trail is generally pretty wide so you never get that “going off the edge” feeling. We did it November, so the heat wasn’t an issue. The elevation loss was about 1,000 feet over the 1.5 miles (666 avg) which is less than ooh ahh point (878 avg) which indicates how much more gradual the decline is.
    The views were great looking up at the canyon, but looking out not much different than the rim views. The total hike took us about 2 and half hours taking time for photos.
