Never saw another hiker in 2 days. I was in great shape and this trail gave me all I could handle. If you want solitude and rugged canyon beauty, this is the trail. Bring water to stash along the way. Don't screw with this trail in the heat unless you are an absolute stud. It will be happy to kill you.
Do your self a favor. Do Kaibab trail both ways. Bright Angel is gross. Really long. Really crowded and lots more mule traffic which means lots more black puddles of mule piss.
