We really enjoyed this trial! 2 adults and 2 kids (age 7 and 9) were able to complete this down, rest for 20 minutes and back up in just under 3 hours. Some parts the dust is a bit hard to walk through and we had to wait for 2 mule groups to pass us as well. Oh yeah, get ready for mule poop :)

This is the only way into the canyon from the north side and it is not as steep as the south side.

Technically for this far down the North Kaibab trail - you are actually not looking at Grand Canyon, but it is still beautiful.

Enjoy!!
