MTfred19Hermit Trail


Went on an amazing six day backpack loop on the Hermit Trail with some great folks. This was my first time in the Grand canyon and it really blew my mind. I will be back.

One more Rim to Rim to Rim under my belt. Every time I go down into the canyon I discover something new, amazing, jaw dropping. There is talk that the bureaucracy at the Grand Canyon Administration is trying to introduce permits for anyone doing a Rim to Rim or Rim to River to Rim. That would be so awful. They should spend some energy and money in fixing those trails, not enforcing bureaucracy.

Need to go back and go to the bottom. Views are of course amazing and can't be compared to anything.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2016


Went there for 2 days with my family as part of a larger vacation. While there, we enjoyed the beautiful views from the North Rim, went to Bright Angel Point twice, and went to all of the Cape Royal Area viewpoints. We saw sights such as the Brahma and Zoroaster Temples, Angels Window, and I located a total of 3 USGS BMs--1 on Bright Angel and 2 at Cape Royal. Views were truly spectacular, would highly recommend this wonder of the world.

Down South Kaibab trail in the morning. Break at Phantom Ranch for lunch and lemonade. Up Bright Angel trail in time for the sunset. Beautiful weather. Long day.

ozarkmacBill Hall Trail to Deer Creek-Thunder River Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2015


Wild weather: flash-boom lightening, rain, wind, hail... had to dry out every morning. But nothing could wipe the sh%t-eatin' grins off our faces. Deer Creek slot canyon, the River Route and Tapeats Creek make for some wild hiking among remote, sublime wildness. The Esplanade is magical. The trail overall is steep and rugged. A fair bit of route-finding required. Saw but a handful of people everyday.

Every time I visit this place, it looks different, more beautiful, more interesting. My only wish would be that visitors would be more considerate to hikers coming up on the trails.

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2014


My wife and I hike down about half way in elevation to the bridge about 2,500 and about 4 miles. Well worth the hike. Sunset at the North Rim was awesome. 2015 would like to do a rim to rim.

Via North Kaibab, Bright Angel and then reverse the route. Emerged snail-like at the North Kaibab TH in under 24 hours. Someday I will return to this beautiful canyon and hike to enjoy it in a more thoughtful way. Need I note this was a solo effort? For some reason I was unsuccessful in recruiting others to try the hike with me. :) IVD

45 miles in 24 hours & 15 minutes of nonstop solo hiking. I know it's a weak time but I'll do better next time. This place has almost unimaginable beauty. On one hand I'm glad I spent 24 hours in the Canyon. Now I know how it feels/looks round the clock.

Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2005


We visited the South Rim 17-9-2005 and the North Rim a day later.
I remember walking from the parking space towards the Canyon...I was speechless for minutes. Not a single photo does justice to the immense size of the GC. What a place to visit :-) We hiked down for a couple of hours and back up. In the future I want to go down all the way to the river, so I will be back!

Camped the North Rim...hiked everything that didn't involve long, long descents into hellish heat and/or mules. Uttered numerous "holy-craps!" and "wows!".

One note...don't expect a desert-ish North Rim; the forest is nice, thick, and runs right up to the rim.

Date Climbed: Nov 16, 1987


My first backpacking trek. Hiked down the snow covered South Kaibab and up the Bright Angel. Spent two nights at Phantom Ranch. Feasted on "hikers' stew" and "all I could eat breakfast." Expensive, but worth every penny. Hiked out-and-back on the Clear Creek Trail the second day. Practically froze-to-death in my "old" sleeping bag during those cold November nights. So cold I couldn't sleep! Been hooked on getting away from the crowds every since.

I've traveled my fair share, and this is the best view on Earth in my opinion. This was my fourth trip to the Canyon, and it will never disappoint, ever! No matter the time of day, or year, it will amaze you. I have hiked to the bottom via the Bright Angel trail before. This trip was just a stop by, to say hi and snap pics with my GF however!
