Fun hike down the Grand Canyon via Whitmore Canyon. Interesting hexagonal basalt formations and great views. The hardest part is getting to the trail head which is only 80 miles from St. George. The drive takes about 3 hours. The last 10 miles takes about 1.5 hours because of the rough terrain over the ancient lava fields. The hike itself is less than 2 miles out and back with only 900 feet of elevation change from the rim to the Colorado River.

We were on a rafting trip, so hiked this up from the river. Awesome views from on top, and the basalt formations were other-worldly.
