Kick off the Summer Hiking Season with one of America’s most iconic & scenic hikes- The Grand Canyon “Rim to Rim”!
Our adventure will begin with an evening in fabulous Las Vegas. The next morning, we will drive to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to enjoy the views & stay overnight. Then, we will day hike from the South Rim to the North Rim (21 miles with 6200 foot elevation gain), take a rest day to explore the North Rim, and then day hike back to the South Rim (25 miles with 5600 foot elevation gain). The hikes will be very strenuous and hikers may encounter high temps of 100F+ in the inner canyon with minimal shade. The trails are excellent with many switchbacks and in good condition. Only hikers in excellent physical condition should attempt this hike.
Three cabins (which will accommodate 9 hikers) on the North Rim have been already been reserved for our hiking group.
All other accommodations/cars/flights etc. should be reserved on your own or other hikers in the group. Hikers that live on the West Coast can join us on Tuesday at the South Rim if desired.
Please email me if interested to discuss logistics, lodging, or other details.
