Hiking

Hiked the trail today. Left at 7:45 AM and back up by 2pm with stops for breaks and pictures at the bridge on way down and Supai Tunnel on way back. Spend some time at the springs to cool off with the spring water. Refilled our water at the tunnel. I have read lots of complaints about mule crap, but it was not bad at all. It was hot today, but If you ate a seasoned hiker, it’s very manageable this time of year. There was more shade on the trail than I expected. I would recommend leaving trailhead earlier but we were staying over 1+ hours away.

Don’t miss this hike. We only went part way and it was spectacular. Easy hike. Not many people. Nice views of the canyon. You have to drive a mile on a dirt road to the trail head.

Awesome trail for a sunrise hike! Parked at the roadside parking area closest to the west of the trailhead (trailhead parking lot is closed) which added about 1 mi to our trip. Arrived at 4:30a on a Tuesday and was the second car there. Round trip total distance was around 4.2 mi which took 2 hours of walking and 1100’ elevation gain.

Amazing way to see the Grand Canyon. Starting early in the AM may be a good approach for those with heat sensitivity. Maybe bring a large hat for shade as well. Plenty of water would be a good idea. We went to Cedar Viewpoint, wish we would have gone farther to Skeleton Point but everyone was overly cautious (rightfully so) due to heat and sun exposure. A lot of people were saying it was challenging but we didn’t find it to be that bad. We are not pros but do hike a few times a month Def do it if you are in the area.

Had a nice hike down to the scenic overlook. It was well worth the trip! Note, hike down is easy, but unseasoned hikers might find the trip back up to be moderate. There are plenty of places to stop for a break. Enjoy!

We started at around 6 AM and finished around 9:30 AM, which was perfect for making it back with enough shade that we were only suffering from the steps and incline going back up, requiring us to stop frequently to catch our breath and rest our muscles. At a casual pace and stopping for pictures intermittently, it took us an hour and a half to reach Cedar Ridge and the same amount to hike back up. We each had three to four frozen water bottles and light snacks. We applied sunscreen and wore hats and sunglasses. This trail was challenging coming back up but doable (and we are young adults that do not regularly condition for hikes or sports), and the view was awesome. We were very glad to have started early to avoid the heat and have most of the shade still present when coming back up. The trail was also less traveled and most people seemed to appear around 8:30-9 AM. Due to COVID resulting in no shuttle buses and closed parking at the trailhead on Yaki Point Rd., we parked at the lookout point around Pipe Creek Vista, as someone else suggested, and walked the paved half mile distance to the trailhead, which was very nice and provided additional views from the top.

Great trail with lots of distance options. Only had a few hours in GC so this was perfect. Climbing out was a major B in the heat but was a good workout

Beautiful, moderately challenging hike to Cedar. Perfect for those without walking sticks/doubting their ability to make it to Skeleton Point. Incredible views!

Don't stop at Ooh Ahh!! Keep going to Cedar Ridge! The views are amazing and it's a great place to chill for a few! Took us 45 min going down and just under an hour coming back up with a few breaks! (With shuttles not running we parked at the picnic area on the right a little past Pipe Creek Vista at 5:30am and there was plenty of parking along the road still!

Great hike with great views. Easy down, challenging hike up. Like everyone said, bring plenty of water and take your time coming back up. Would say you should be in pretty good shape for the hike up. Highly recommended!

My watch said I went 10.4 miles down and back. Took us about 5 in a half hours. It was a pretty trail but there are better views on the south rim. If your in the area I’d suggest it. Plenty of mule dung and piss. Go early and bring plenty of water, it can get super hot in the canyon. It’s a tough hike back out, we took plenty of breaks.

Easy walk through pines with an incredible 180 degree view of the canyon.

Definitely on my top 5 trails ever. First two miles are ok with a great view point right at the beginning, these first miles are full of horse fesses and urine so could take away from the great experience. But once you pass the second test area the horses go on a different direction and the trail stops smelling horrible. Right after the second test area there is a little túnel and after that túnel is when you start getting the amazing views of the canyon. The spring at the end is a cool place to sit down drink some water in the shade and prepare mentally for the way up. I when during the summer and drank a litters of water on the way down and 4 litters in the way up(some of the girls on my group drank even more). Make sure to bring enough water and a water filter is recommended. Lastly be careful with the canyon, going down is easy but going back up can take twice as long and be 10 times more exhausting.

Super fun with GREAT views!! Loved it, but it was a challenge coming back up (even in great shape). We gained 1200 some feet of elevation in about 1.4 miles coming up. Yikes.

Started at 6:15am to avoid the heat and its a good thing we did. Tried parking at trailhead since busses are not running but was warned by a park employee that they are aggressively towing from the lot if you don’t have a permit. We decided not to risk it and parked on the street outside the barricades. This added 1.6 miles to the hike. Hike to Cedar Ridge was slower than expected due to loose rocky terrain. Views from the ridge are stunning though and worth the effort. I was able to take a 300 degree panoramic photo that is awesome. Hike back up is strenuous so we took numerous breaks. Glad we started early because the sun started to hit parts of the trail on the way up and heat was a factor by 9:00. Overall it is a hike I would highly recommend. Start early and bring lots of water.

We only made it to Ooh Aah Point. Well developed trail with amazing views. Obviously easy down and difficult up. There’s no water in the canyon so bring your own!
