Length: 1.3 mi • Est. 1 h 44 m
The Tomichi Route is the steepest of the South Rim's inner-canyon routes. The constant loose rock and full sun exposure make it a less popular option compared to the nearby Gunnison Route. Only 15 permits are allowed each day, with one permit per group. The trail begins at the Tomichi overlook and begins at a post labeled #13. 2/3 of the trail is straight scree. The trail is not marked, however there are some cairns left by previous hikers along the way. Hiking boots with good traction are a necessity for this trail. Show more
