Whether you backpack it or hike it in one very long day, trekking across the Grand Canyon from the South Rim to the North Rim and back is one of our National Park System’s greatest adventures. Check out this gallery of photos for inspiration, and then read my story about a 44.5-mile, 11,000-vertical-foot, rim-to-rim-to-rim dayhike, which provides plenty of trip-planning information for backpackers, too.

    I did the rim to rim to rim trip several years ago in mid-October. Although it involved two long days it remains one of my all time favourite hikes. We started on the North Rim, stayed on the South Rim for two nights so we could have a rest day and then returned the third day. Fantastic every step of the way.
