Photo Gallery: Backpacking the Grand Canyon, Grandview Point to the South Kaibab Trailhead

By Michael Lanza

Are you ready to step up to the next level of adventure? The 29-mile, four-day hike from Grandview Point to the South Kaibab Trailhead is a classic, and not as popular as other Big Ditch backpacking trips. It features infinite views of deep chasms and soaring towers from arguably to two most scenic trails on the Grand Canyon’s South Rim—the Grandview and South Kaibab trails—and a traverse of the gentler Tonto Plateau, with mind-blowing panoramas stretching from the canyon rims to the Colorado River.

This photo gallery will give you a good sampler. Then read my story about my family’s trip, with more photos, a video, and tips on planning your trip.
