Ready for some fun and adventure in the Canyon?
We'll head up Thursday in order to hit the trail early Friday morning.
Friday morning, after a hearty breakfast, we'll hike the Grandview Trail descending 3,800' over 5 miles to the Tonto Plateau. Along the way, we stop and explore the Cave of the Domes so bring your headlamp and bread crumbs! Cottonwood Creek is a picturesque camp with reliable water.
On Saturday, we hike the Tonto Trail east around Horseshoe Mesa towards Hance Creek and then climb up 1,200'+ to our camp on top of the Mesa. The Tonto in this section offers incredible view of the Colorado River and the Inner Gorge. We'll stop at Miners Spring for water as Horseshoe Mesa is a dry camp. This will be about 7-8 miles of hiking.
On Sunday, we'll return on the Grandview Trail climbing 2,600' up over 3 miles. Once out, we'll grab some lunch and before heading home. Total miles will be around 16 with 6,100' of elevation loss/gain. Cost is $65/person with $50 refundable at the trailhead. No refunds if you cancel for any reason so check your schedule carefully before signing up.
