Hi everyone! I'm hiking in on Memorial Day and wondering what I should pack for the evening? Is it getting chilly in the canyon? Right now I'm planning on just a blanket for my hammock. Or do you think I need a sleeping bag? Looks like he low will be 50. Let me know what you think! Thanks for the feedback! DM me on Insta lesannlow

Hi everyone! i will be exploring this area with a girlfriend on 6/18-6/19. Please let me know if anyone has room on their reservation for us. We will help with costs, of course, and anything else thats needed! :) email me at ale.bibian11@yahoo.com

This is a fabulous day hike if you're in shape and able to do it. It is a unique experience hiking in 40 degree weather at the top and 90 degree weather at the bottom, and having to hike down to start and up to finish. There are not many hikes in the world this long where you can do that.

I still prefer hiking in the mountains at higher elevation, but this hike was enjoyable. It is definitely the best hike easily accessible from the Grand Canyon shuttle system.

My husband and I completed this trail today. We are both in good physical shape. 64 & 56 yrs of age. The scenery on this trail was amazing! The rock formations and views of the lake were fun and serene. It took us 3 hours. We definitely felt the stretch on our legs and ankles, the walking up down put some stress on our knees. It is a moderately difficult trail and this is probably as hard as our bodies could probably do. Good hiking shoes, lots of water really helped.

Awesome hike, not very difficult but pretty. Stayed at the campsite & did the Beaver Creek Trail which was so peaceful, but get on the trail early to have it to yourself

Challenging hike, the mileage on this app is not accurate, it's about 8 miles one way. Bring plenty of water and prepare for a rewarding experience!!

not for beginners. we went down to the horseshoe. very technical areas. steep. because of how steep it is remember to give the hiker coming up the right of way. beautiful view of the canyon and Co river in the distance. bring lots of water 3 L a person and good footwear is a must. bathrooms available at trailhead.

The views are absolutely amazing!!! Save your energy if you are doing only a day hike...down and back. Bring plenty water and snacks for fuel...

can this be done in one day? me and my GF are coming out in August we are well traveled and endurance trail runners...we have never been here I was just trying to get some info on the trail down to the falls....502-338-6297 I would appreciate all the info thanks.

This is a great hike for Grand Canyon first timers! My friend and I hiked 3 miles down and up (6 miles total) and were pretty tired by the end of it. Just be sure to bring your camera for the amazing views, a ton of water, and a backpack with snacks if you're planning on hiking far down! Also be aware of how far you hike down, because it's a tiring hike back up!

It was a great hike! Challenging in nature as it's purely uphill and long enough to give a good workout. Every ounce of energy spent is worth it for the views of the valley from the top!

The trail can be easy to loose. It has beautiful views, great work out.

Great time, went Rim-Rim-Rim. Nature at its finest. Connected with the Canyon and the family! ( Wife & Daughter ). Hiked and camped the entire trip , 5 days of bliss.
Highly recommend, get your cardio in shape, running hills and hitting the stairMaster.
