Join us for an early Fall outing in the spectacular Grand Canyon, where we will hike over 40 miles in two days. Our R2R2R route will make a "lollipop" semi-loop, so that we can experience three different trails: North Kaibab, South Kaibab and Bright Angel. Those who wish can make a short (3.2 miles round-trip) detour to Ribbon Falls.

General Itinerary, hike start times TBD:

Friday, October 7 - Drive to the North Rim and spend the night at the North Rim Campground.

Saturday, October 8 - Follow the North Kaibab Trail down to the Colorado River and Bright Angel Trail up to the South Rim. Spend the night at Maswik Lodge or Yavapai Lodge.

Sunday, October 9 - Follow the South Kaibab Trail down to the Colorado and then take the North Kaibab Trail up to the North Rim. Spend the night at the North Rim Campground.

Monday, October 10 - Break camp and drive home.

All costs, including campsite fees and lodge rooms, are the responsibility of the participants.

Please sign up by joining the Waiting List. Because of the difficulty of the outing, which includes hiking more than 20 miles each day in variable weather conditions (heat, cold, rain, wind, whatever), participants will be screened by the organizer. No plus-ones are allowed. This sign-up process is for your safety and the safety of the group. Thanks for your understanding!
