The trail was not as hard to follow as I expected. We camped at Shinumo Camp for 2 nights. We day hiked down to the river. For the hike out we camped on the trail near where we cached our water.

13th Annual Earth Day Hike 2007
March 30 - April 1, 2007
3 days, 2 nights, 8 hikers

Took the Grandview to the Tonto to Hance Rapids. Took the New Hance trail to the South Rim.

Sections of the Grandview trail are filled with cobblestone, making for difficult decent when cover with snow.

Horseshoe Mesa and the Last Chance Mine was our first stop. Here we found a miner's cabin, mine shafts and several mining artifacts. We then traveled west to Cave of the Domes just below the rim of the mesa. The cave has many large rooms. Back on the trail, we drop off the western arm of Horseshoe Mesa and came back east along the Tonto to Hance Creek camping area, 6.5 miles from the trailhead.

The next day we continue along the Tonto for 6.5 miles to Hance Rapids where we camp.

Back on the trail our last day, we hike 9 miles out the New Hance Trail back to the South Rim. The trail has extremely steep switchbacks with portions obliterated by rock falls and slides. The views are spectacular.

Hikers: Ann, Dan, Tim, Richard, Bob, Dooley, Darrell, Greg

Royal Arch, Elves Chasm and South Bass Loop
Grand Canyon North Rim

12th Annual Earth Day Hike 2006
April 26th-30th, 2006
5 days, 4 nights, 5 hikers

A rugged backpacking adventure into an infrequently visited area. Royal Arch is considered one of the more difficult routes in the canyon and requires much scrambling and some climbing skills.

Water availability is often a problem on the Esplanade and the Tonto Plateaus. Leather gloves strongly recommended. Approximately 45 miles from South Bass along Esplanade to Royal Arch, back to Elves Chasm and return via Tonto to South Bass.

Although Royal Arch and Elves Chasm are along the same streambed and within a mile of each other, to go from Royal Arch to Elves Chasm requires a long detour, with a 20 foot rappel (not as bad as it sounds) at a point where travertine deposits provide an opportunity to get through the Tapeats formation.

Royal Arch Hikers: Richard, Ann, Greg, Tim, Geoff;
South Bass Hikers: Dooley, Bob
