Grand Canyon - Hermits Rest to Bright Angel

  • Oct 21, 2011 · 2:00 PM
  • TBA

We will be leaving Phoenix Friday afternoon around 2:00pm and drive up to the canyon to spend the night. Saturday we will get up and grab breakfast and then catch the shuttle to Hermits Rest where we will start the hike. The first day will be 9.8 miles to Monument creek where we will establish camp for the night. We can then take a two mile round trip down to the Colorado to see some spectacular rapids.

The next day we will start are 15.5 mile hike out with a 10.7 mile hike across the Tonto to Indian Gardens. A brief rest and then on out on the Bright Angel trail. It will be a strenuous hike but we will be rewarded with some great views and some more secluded hiking. The Hiking fee can be sent to me by sending it to my email [masked] via paypal.

    That will not be a problem. I plan to start at around 6am, make it to indian gardens around 11:00am take an hour or so break and head for the rim with an aim of making it out around 4

    Hi Jim, I am a slow hiker, 15.5 mile hike will take me about 7-8 hours. Will that be an issue? I can start earlier than others I guess.

    Yes, the plan is to drive up friday after work. I have not been able to find any rooms so we will probably be camping on the rim friday night.When we get out Sunday we grab a good meal and then head back.
