New Meetup: Thunder River/ Deer Creek Backpack Trip in Grand Canyon

Announcing a new Meetup for Take a Hike!

What: Thunder River/ Deer Creek Backpack Trip in Grand Canyon

When: Thursday, October 28, 2010 3:30 PM

Price: $20.00 per person

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)


I have at least one maybe more extra permits for one of the ultimate Grand Canyon backpacking trip destinations, the Thunder River and Deer Creek loop. This trip is not overly aggressive with mileage traveled per day so that we will have more time to explore, and enjoy the waters of Thunder River, Tapeats Creek and Deer Creek as well as the Colorado River.

This was Barry Goldwater's favorite destination in the Grand Canyon and I have never been there, so please come if you have the time and are an experienced backpacker and especially if you have backpacked in the Grand Canyon backcountry. Hopefully we will not get shut out again by snow on the North Rim.

This is the itinerary:
Drive up Thursday night 10/28 and possibly stay at Jacob's Lake
Night 1 Friday 10/29 Esplanade use area
Night 2 Saturday 10/30 Lower Tapeats campsite
Night 3 Sunday 10/31 Deer Creek campsite
Night 4 Monday 11/1 Esplanade use
Hike out on 11/2 and drive home
