This was easily our favorite hike of the trip. We started out on the Pinnacles Trail and added Emory Peak to the loop. The South Rim hike was beautiful all the way through but when you hit the halfway point and look out... that alone makes the distance worth it. Be sure to start early in the day, bring plenty of water(we brought 4L each and drank it all), and maybe some snacks. The trail was very well marked. Just this trail took us about 7 hours.
