Our Grand Canyon Rim to Rim Hike is a Grand Canyon legend and deservedly so! The ability to hike across the Canyon is what makes the Rim to Rim so special, as you have the unique opportunity to experience both rims and everything in between. (The North Rim does close after October 15th every year due to harsh winter conditions and reopens May 15th) 

The Rim to Rim hike begins on the South Rim at South Kaibab Trail where we hike down to our first stop, the famous Bright Angel Campground. After a good lunch and getting our feet wet in the creek, we start back up and head over to our next stop, Cottonwood campsite. And on the hike there we'll take a side trip to Ribbon Falls, one of the Grand Canyon's most dramatic waterfalls.

After a good soak in the waterfalls, we make our last push towards the North Kaibab Trail to the North Rim. 

This hike take a lot of training and preparation to complete but that's why we are here. We usually need about 3-5 months advance noticed before booking this trip so we have plenty of time to get ready. Yes the goal is to finish the hike, but with our preparation, training, and guidance we make sure its safe, fun, enjoyable but most importantly, memorable.
