First off..regrettable, reading too much information prevents us from going to skeleton point. We made it to Cedar Ridge with no problem. That was 3 days ago. I am 51 and average to good health. I hike a few miles every other weeks so I...More

This trail is phenomenally beautiful with excellent views. The word “majestic” describes it all! The trail is well maintained. I highly recommend it.

Me, my wife and her cousin did the one-day South Rim to river and back in one day. It all went splendidly but we're quite fit and had prepared and trained extensively. I'd advise that people really think twice (or more) before attempting this, because...More

The old hiking adage is certainly applicable here: It takes twice as long to go up as it does to go down...and while it's certainly a lot tougher climb back up, the views are ooh-aah worthy. Parts of the trail are a little tough to...More

Maybe a collapsible one might be best. Pick up your fishing permit at the General Store in Market Plaza in the village. Bright Angel Creek may yield some fish.
