USA – 5 Days Grand Canyon Rim to Rim Backpacking Adventure

About this event

Overview

A Rim to Rim hike is the quintessential guided backpacking tour at the Grand Canyon National Park and there is no better way to explore what it has to offer than to hike from one side to the other! This trip begins in the cool pines of the North Rim on the North Kaibab Trail and heads down into the desert landscape of Phantom Ranch near the Colorado River before climbing back up the Bright Angel Trail into the pines on the South Rim. Our 5 day Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hiking tours are all-inclusive, including transportation from Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ to and from the canyon.

NORTH RIM - COTTONWOOD CAMP

north rim grand canyon | Bucket List Group Travel

Description:

Your Grand Canyon guided backpacking tour begins with an early morning pick-up at your Phoenix hotel. We then transport you to the North Rim via a five and a half-hour drive to the North Kaibab trailhead, passing over the Marble Canyon Gorge and through the Arizona Strip below the Vermilion Cliffs and up through the Kaibab National Forest. We begin our descent starting at about 8000 feet elevation. The Phantom Ranch at the Colorado River is over a mile down in elevation and fourteen miles in distance. You will be carrying a backpack weighing approximately 35 to 37 pounds. It will contain your personal belongings along with the food and camping gear we provide. This is the only trail on the North Rim that has pack horses and mules allowed on it and it is considered the main route to the river below. On this first day, we hike down seven miles to our first campsite at Cottonwood Camp. At this point, we have already left the dense forest of the North Rim far behind and descended into the semi-arid desert of the lower canyon environment.

Description:

On the third day of our Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike, we leave after an early breakfast and hike another seven miles down to the Bright Angel Campground adjacent to Phantom Ranch. There is so much to see here. The historic Phantom Ranch was built by the well-known architect Mary Colter back in the 1930s and is nestled into a canyon facing the river. Side canyons beg to be explored if you have the energy after a day of hiking, or you can sit by the river waiting for a raft to go by. This is a popular, well-traveled trail, so you will see many visitors from all around the world during our time here.
