Grand Canyon North Rim to South Rim

  • Jun 1, 2013 · 6:00 AM

Grand Canyon North Rim to South Rim

When?

June 1st

Where are we staying?

Jacobs Lake (North Rim) and Red Feather Lodge (South Rim)

How much will it cost?

The cost will be $175 per person. This will include the transportation via charter bus from Goodyear to the North Rim and from the South Rim back to Goodyear, the entrance fee into the park and a cool looking tech shirt. We will also provide guidance on what you need to do to have a successful day, but ultimately that will be everyone’s responsibility to prepare themselves. You will be able to purchase additional shirts for $18.

The fee does not include the hotel rooms but here are the details. A 2 bed queen room at Jacobs Lake is $139 plus tax for a total of $149.75. If you share a room with 4 people that is approx. $37.50 per person. On the South Rim, we are staying at the Red Feather Lodge. A 2 bed queen room is $126.70, so about $32 per person. Other than that you will have your personal variable costs of food, etc. We have. Enough reserved.

Who’s invited?

Anyone who is able to do this hike.

Agenda

Friday – May 31st

Meet in Goodyear where a chartered bus will pick us up. We will drive to Flagstaff and do some carb loading at Sizzler. We will then stop at the bridge over the river to take some pictures and then make our way to Jacobs Lake and staying at the Jacobs Lake Inn. We have already reserved a bunch of rooms, so you will need to tell us if you are going to be sharing a room with someone. We need at least 2 people per room. But to save cost 4 to a room is even better. Friday night we will plan on having dinner at the hotel restaurant.

Saturday – June 1st

We will be leaving the hotel at 5:00am sharp and be at the trailhead at 6:00am. Bring some granola bars and OJ to drink on the 45min drive to the lodge. Then a simple, little 24 mile hike down the North rim up the South rim. It will probably take approx 12 hours-15 hours for the hike. We would hope to be on the south side around 6pm- 9pm. There is a free shuttle service that will take you from the trail head to the Red Feather Lodge. FYI, there is some good food at the Yavapai cafeteria so you might want to stop there before you head to your rooms.

Sunday – June 2nd

We will be leaving the Lodge at 9am and heading home. We will plan on stopping to get some lunch at Camp Verde. We plan on being back home around 1pm.

Preparation

We will have two meetings (BBQ’s) to go over some of the preparations for the hikes. One meeting at the beginning and one a week or two before we leave. We will also plan on organizing a group hike to help prepare for this little adventure. Last year it was great to see everyone start organizing their own hikes and inviting the group to come with.

If you are interested or have some friends that have always wanted to do this hike, let me know.

      We will be going up Bright Angel. We have a verity of skills going and with more being available on Bright Angel and not South Kaibab, it is the better choice. Thanks for asking.
