AZT trail # 39 first half. From rim of the Grand canyon north to trail crossing of Hwy 67. Could not continue north due to fire closure of East of Hwy 67. Trail is in good condition, follows dirt road for the first 1.25 miles then follows single track for short distance then single track follows along what use to be a forest service road. At about 6 miles the trail crosses Hwy 67. The scenery on this hike makes it well worth it. From The trail head the Grand canyon can not be seen, you would never know that there is a big hole just a couple hundred yard south along the North Kaibab Trail. There was no water along the trail even though it is monsoon season (was a dry monsoon year). It is not uncommon for water not to flow above ground in the Plateau regions of northern Arizona as it sinks in the ground pretty rapidly. I would expect water would not be an issue on this trail because of it's length. This hike is round trip so distance and AEG are doubled.
