Don't forget to look to the west of Phoenix. There are some great hikes in the White Tank Mountains. A combination of Goat Camp Trail and Willow Springs will give you an excellent workout and a variety of terrain. It is a little longer drive to the trail head, but Quartz Mountain (also on the west s...

Roaring Springs is 4 miles down the North Kaibab. Some of the most awesome views of the Canyon are found between Supai Tunnel (2 miles from the rim) and Roaring Springs.

And, as Steven said, you can turn around at any point on the North Kaibab.

azhiker96 is correct about the North Rim being closed in November. It is open from mid-May to Mid-October weather permiiting. I have a couple of conflicts the end of September but, depending on the date you pick, I am definitely interested in joining you. I hiked from the North Rim to the South Rim ...

What is the dinner like? I can't believe we will have to wait until 7 p.m. to get it. Hope it is worth it! The 7:00 PM meal is the stew meal and I think you will find it more than worth the wait. We think it is outstanding. They will assign you to a table and then the meal is served family style - ...

:lol: I have stayed in the dorms at Phantom Ranch on 3 different occasions and have never seen or heard a mouse. Nor have I had anyone else comment/complain about mice. There may be some in the camp ground but I don't think there are any in the dorms. They do not have metal cans, but, as MaryPhyl st...

What time of day did you start and what time would you start if you hiked it again? azhiker96: We left Phoenix at 7:30 in the morning. Our plan was to get to the Grand Canyon around noon, have a bite to eat, take a nap, and then start hiking at 5:00 pm. But, having had a big breakfast at Camp Verde...

The Trail does not go all the way to the top and there are posted signs advising hikers to stay on the trail. There are 3 rock climbing areas. It is possible that one of these areas goes all the way to the top, but I do not know.

My question ultimately is this: how hard is it to hike from the North Rim to Phantom Ranch in a day without heavy backpacking stuff? Dianne, we just returned from a Rim to Rim to Rim. We started at the South Rim carrying camelbaks that weighed about 17 pounds before we added water. It took us a lit...

Hiked the Trail the day after it opened and I experienced nothing like what Dustwatcher describes. There was one person at the office/trailhead. Saw no other authority type figures, hired or volunteer. The trail did have gravel but it was a far cry from what you would find in someone's yard. My hiki...

GTG - Really enjoyed your photos. I have hiked the Canyon 5 times but never tire of seeing it again, and again. Will be undertaking a RTRTR in a couple of weeks, look for a report (and photos) afterwards.

Excellent timing on this post. For the past two weeks, I have been looking semi-seriously into the purchase of a GPS. I have about decided on the Garman Etrex, a Lowrance iFinder, or a Magellan Meridian. Have heard from Nighthiker on the Garman. Does anyone have any info/experience with the last two?
