this large loop takes in most of what savage gulf has to offer. starting at stone door you hike west to greeters falls then back to alum gap for the first night. day two you hike into the gulf to ranger falls ending the first day at a camp site near Schwoon spring. on day three you work your way out of the gorge to a shelter at Hobbs Cabin. day four you walk along the north rim trail to savage falls where you can cut this trip short or spend another day or two walking back into the gulf then west till you ascend out at stone door.

this is a very strenuous hike. take extreme caution.
