Popular Loop Option
This Tonto Trail section is primarily used as a loop from South Kaibab trailhead to Bright Angel trailhead. It is a good day hike for those in proper condition. However, it is a demanding hike because of the lack of shade from the South Kaibab trailhead to Indian Gardens. Expect little shade on the South Kaibab portion and no shade on the Tonto. Due to the extreme conditions, this hike should NOT be attempted once the temperatures reach 100 degrees. Even the fittest hikers have experienced medical problems (even death) during these conditions!
Everyone needs to carry water! A common mistake is not carrying water and not bringing enough water. When hiking in a group, each person should be carrying water; carrying for the group is a common mistake. Always remember to eat as well as drink while hiking. You will be using a lot of energy when hiking the canyon.
