This was doable after coming down south kaibab and spending nights at phantom ranch. Relatively flat but new stunning scenery around every bend. Spent a very refreshing few hours at the falls to recharge before returning.

Beautiful portion of the trail. Did it as part of a rim to rim and back again... The most awesome hike I've done to date.

Mostly shaded and relatively flat. Ends at a beautiful and cold waterfall with moss covered cone rock.
