      Grand Canyon is home to some of the best hiking in the Southwest. The range of scenery is incredible­, from cool pine forests to narrow slot canyons to everything in between. There are trails that skirt the edge of the rim and trails that plunge thousands of feet to the Colorado River. These springs are literally oases for the canyon's flora and fauna. Features: An adventurous day in the Grand Canyon backcountry! Transportation to and from your hotel along private roads directly to exclusive trailhead parking. We provide everything that you need: water bottles, hiking poles, backpacks and trail snacks.

      Grand Canyon Outfitters is located inside Canyon Village Market at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park Grand Canyon Outfitters has everything you need for a Grand Canyon Adventure! Inside Canyon Village Market, you will find a fully stocked outdoor store with camping and hiking gear for every type of Grand Canyon visitor. The Grand Canyon is a very unique environment, and it is important to note that the temperature on the rim of the Grand Canyon is significantly colder than at the bottom of the canyon, due to a difference in elevation of over 5, vertical feet.5/5().

        Hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim is a once in a lifetime experience that easily made it into my top 3 favorite hikes of all time. The day’s last rays of light reflecting off the multicolored rocks, the steady babble of Bright Angel Creek, the curious wildlife, and the desert landscape slowly morphing into Pine and Aspen trees make for an unforgettable backcountry .   The South Kaibab Trail starts 7, feet above the Colorado River on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, and runs about 5 miles to the Phantom Ranch campground on the floor of the canyon. Three miles in, you’re still a mile above the river at Skeleton Point, where you are advised to turn around if day-hiking.
