This was an incredible challenge and yet people who aren't avid hikers can complete it. Definitely recommend going EARLY. Can get very windy at the top with little to know warning. I pushed myself to use this as a workout seeing as how it's too hot in Phoenix. I was able to make it to the top in 2h 10min. The bugs at the top were in abundance.

Nice trail. Some steep parts and lots of ferns and nice views.

This was by far my family's favorite hike at the GC. No crowds and great views. The hike itself is very easy, since you are walking on in car service path. The trailhead isn't marked, but don't let that stop you. It came up in Google Maps for me, and we parked in the small lot, walked around the blocked gate, and were on our way!

Grueling but worth every vista. First day down South Kaibab there is no shade after you leave the shadow of the Canyon at the start of the trip. Getting to Bright Angel Campground was dope tho cause they had a large cold creek that you could lay in and play about. Get there early to find a spot in the shade right on the creek. Second day hike you start the uphill battle to Indian Garden Campgrounds. Plenty of shade there, lots of Mule Deer and lizards. Creek is small but if you get there early enough you can cut out a private little spot for yourself. Last day on Bright Angel is gonna be tough, the elevation change is significant and you'll pass all these chipper hikers coming down saying hi. start your hikes before sunrise each morning to beat out the excruciating summer weather.

This is the perfect 5k! Pretty flat with only minor inclines/declines. It's awesome because all the trails are well marked and intersect so you can adjust the length of your venture accordingly.
