The Best First Backpacking Trip in the Grand Canyon

If there’s an archetypal Grand Canyon trek, backpacking rim to rim is it. Traversing the canyon brings backpackers on a uniquely scenic and challenging tour of one of the planet’s greatest natural wonders. This premium e-guide is the most comprehensive guide you’ll find to backpacking the park’s three “corridor trails:” the South and North Kaibab and Bright Angel trails. These are the Grand Canyon’s most backpacker-friendly trails because, while strenuous, they have the best construction quality, water availability, access, and ease of navigation. This e-guide will tell you what other trail guides do not: how to fully plan and execute a rim-to-rim backpacking trip in either direction, plus describe four alternative hiking itineraries—making it a complete guide to the various possible multi-day hikes on the corridor trails. You will get expert advice on the ideal times of year, how to obtain a very popular backcountry permit, travel logistics, gear, safety, and other details you need to know before taking one of the most prized and rewarding multi-day hikes in the country.
