    A great hike that ends in a great campsite with a panoramic view of the Colorado River gorge. Easy walk from the overlook to the campsite.

    Trail is completely overgrown with large bushes that have big sharp thorns. Nearly impassable without a suit of armor.

    This trail has so much variety with amazing views that I did it twice and skipped Bright Angel. This one was good for the whole family which ranged from 10 to 64, and 2 of the adults had mild walking pains but still finished this, albeit at a very slow pace. Try to get out before 9 am to enjoy the shade of the eastern cliffs above you!

    Hiked on September 10, 2019. Beautiful green water in the Colorado River. Not too hot this time of year. We brought long sleeve shirts, but didn’t need them.

    This is a long a difficult hike. Hiking the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in a single day is grueling. Be prepared. The small deviation to visit ribbon falls is well worth it - it is a must-see feature along your way.

    Great place to camp. Enjoyed the Grand Canyon without seeing anyone else. Plan on two hours driving out to the point.

    An ill-advised way to measure physical conditioning and test high heat response is to undertake this short but difficult hike on an extreme heat warning day such as I did. The purpose was to determine what kind of trouble I’d get myself in should I attempt rim to river during peak afternoon heat. It served me well in that regard in that I learned to carry twice as many electrolytes than planned and to absolutely sit my bottom in the shade between 11-4, unless I really, really want to needlessly suffer and risk heat related issues. This trial run kept the following trail safe and pleasant. This hike itself is steep and the view at Skeleton Point is rewarding. If you’re a 44 year old male carrying 30 extra pounds of soft tissue and in moderate to decent cardiovascular shape, expect a grueling hike out.

    As seen by the recorded path, this was clearly one of the more adventurous and mysterious paths on the Bright Angel Trail! But besides this app making a mess of the journey, this was easily my favorite and most rewarding hike in memory. I trekked it solo as a 44 year old male carrying 30 lbs of extra cargo (aka, fat), following the advice of rangers to avoid hiking during the hottest hours of the day - mostly (I hiked up to 11:30 AM and resumed between 3:00-3:30). I hadn’t really started training for the hike until a couple months before, which was more like testing my fitness and preparation, so I paced myself to minimize fatigue and impact on my joints. As a result, the hike was pleasant, if not long. Started at 04:30 and was down to the Colorado around 09:15. Soaked my feet in the river and took in a sandwich before heading up to Indian Gardens to sit out the overhead sun. Landed at IG around 11:30, where I hydrated, took a pleasant nap and talked with fellow hikers from around the world. I grew restless and hit the trail for the remaining 4.8 miles some time between 15:00-15:30. I paced myself to keep my heart rate in a moderate zone, taking a break at 3-mile rest house, and finished the hike just before 19:00. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have some level of preparation. Listen to all the advice about how to safely complete the hike and you’ll have a truly incredible experience.

    Phenomenal hike, beats the heck out of your knees and feet with the constant downhill but worth it, great views.

    I believe this is a moderate hike as anyone in decent physical condition should be able to do it. There were lots of kids and older people on the trail, one of them me (69). it's only about 1 mile down to Ooh Aah Point which has amazing views. Then another 0.6 to Cedar Ridge where the views aren't as good but still worth the short hike down to it. Took me about 35 minutes to get to Cedar Ridge including stops along the way. About 45 minutes on the return as i was moving pretty quickly. The views all along the hike are wonderful so i highly recommend this short hike.

    Beatiful trail. I met this trail at Hance Rapids (from Escalante Route). The hike up Hance Creek canyon was beautiful and memorable. Hance Creek makes a great place to camp. The creek is pretty small, but reliable. There is a lot of space for camping. There were two other groups while I was there (eight other people) and I was able to keep my distance from them. The hike up past Page Springs is less challenging than I was expecting after hearing it described with so many superlatives and expletives. It's uphill, but not treacherous. I didn't think it was any harder than the climb up Grand View from Horseshoe Mesa.

    I followed this trail to access the Escalante Route during the first week of November. I only saw one group of three people during the entire day. The weather was perfect. Camping at Tanner Beach is ideal.

    I hiked this route during the first week in November. The weather was perfect (highs in the high 60s) and I saw only one other person on the entire route.

    11/10/18 First half of Rim to River to Rim Via Bright Angel Trail. Sunny skies, cool temps, perfect trail and not a lot of traffic. The views from Bright Angel Trail are amazing. Start before dawn. As the sun rises the beautiful views open up. If you can deal with 20 degree weather at the start (layers) I believe this is the time to attempt longer hikes in the canyon.

    This was Day 4 of my trip and the hike from Red Canyon at the river to the Grandview Trail trailhead was great. The first section on the New Hance Trail was fairly easy with lots of views and and sparse wildflowers this time of year. The first 2 miles were along the Colorado and offered views of the vast expense of the inner canyon 360 degrees. The next 4 miles were and easy loop around washes. I reached the beautiful Hance campground at 11am and ate a nice big lunch and replenished my water for the hike up to Horseshoe Mesa. This was all uphill with a scramble around the old mine. the elevation change was from 3800' to 6700'. Once I arrived on the Mesa, I started to run into a few hikers and backpackers on their way down.

    hiked on 10/17/18 (Phantom Ranch- Bright Angel TH)- section of trail with creek water crossing it (between Indian Gardens and Devils Corkscrew). Saw conservation/ranger group heading down to repair this (hopefully it is resolved). no problems hiking through this section though. otherwise great trail conditions. some foliage changes noted.
