We did this the loop in 11 hours Starting around 7:am South Kaibab Trailhead, we had thunder and lightning in the bottom, it was very scary . We stayed in Indian Gardens at least for an hour waiting the rain to stop . Park ranger told us be careful because trees down and some mud slides, in every turn amazing views and our prize a beautiful rainbow It was of the best hikes that I had done. Prepare physically and mentally and do it.
