Did this on one of my backpacking trips in the canyon. On the 3rd day we went from Cottonwood over the north rim to the pizza parlor and back to Cottonwood for the night before going to Bright Angel the next night. Everything in the Canyon is awesome. Absolutely my favorite place on earth to hike. Wish I didn't live 1.200 miles away.
