I wheeled it in my 2007 Tacoma prerunner with K02 tires and aired down to 19 psi. We had no problems climbing all the hill.
There are 3 gates that nobody mentions but just make sure to close them. The trail over all was a lot of fun.

The cacti are f;lowering!

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.

This was a nice hike. You don't need a pass or to pay a fee for this trail so that's a plus! Once you get to the very top it is somewhat unclear which path to take down. So many options! We are definitely going to take our dog next time we go.

I would recommend this trail to anyone! Best time to go is May or October. A permit is needed since it is on a reservation. The permits can be purchased Jan/Feb of each year. A limited amount of permits are sold each year and most are taken by guided outfits. The waterfalls were amazing and refreshing after a 11 mile hike in, passing 50ft Falls then camping at Havasupai Falls. Once you set up camp you can go further down to Mooney Falls and Beaver Creek Falls.

Super Easy trail Great for short Summer Hikes. I hiked it a few times. A lot of the Goldmine ruins are still left. Great Views of Phoenix and Gila Crossing. One day, I was out there and low Clouds where just above the Base of the Mountain. It was so cool.
