   Trip Description

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour: Sept 9-13 and Oct 20-24, 2006 - $650 This introductory trip takes you to the bottom of the Canyon via the famous South Kaibab Trail. This exceptionally scenic trail takes you 7 miles straight down to the bottom passing vistas galore. Once at the bottom sites including the Colorado River, Ribbon Falls, Phantom Falls and Creek, Clear Creak and Phantom Ranch await. The hike out traverses, perhaps the most well known, Bright Angel Trail. The abundance of water and high traffic of this trail allow for a more relaxed trip up, but don't fool yourself. You are still hiking approximately 9 miles up and out!

Special Features:
These backpacking trips intended for those very new to backpacking or the outdoors, but that are in fairly decent physical condition. Keep in mind that NO trip down to the bottom of the Canyon is easy. The difference between the beginning and advanced trips is how remote the area is, water availability, grade of the trail and how well that trail is maintained.
