Join Me on Hermit/Boucher Trail This Weekend?

I'm planning a day hike of the Hermit Trail this Sunday 3/05. Anybody interested in joining me? I will be driving up from Phoenix if you want to share the ride, too. Or just meet at the trailhead.

We changed our backcountry permit as a result and will be going down South Kaibab to Cremation and Grapevine use areas.

I might be assuming that adequate pre-hike planning has included a ...

Grandview Trail Closed Until Summer

Just got a call from the Backcountry Office at GCNP and the Grandview Trail has washed out near the top. They have imposed a hard closure and anticipate it will be a few months (!) before repairs are complete. Soon (assuming site performance recovers) I plan to post photos from a mid-February hike o...
