Description

Incomparable scenery characterizes the 277-mile long Grand Canyon of the Colorado River, and hiking is a great way to explore this unique national park. Hundreds of miles of established trails and countless backcountry routes provide hikers with a variety of challenges in one of the world’s greatest desert canyons.

Trails descend from canyon-rim overlooks into the great depths amid bold stone towers, cliffs, and terraces of ancient rock where the earth’s geologic history has been exposed by the raw erosive forces of nature. The immensity and complexity of the canyon and its tributary gorges are difficult to appreciate without abandoning roadside viewpoints and hiking into the abyss.

Hiking Grand Canyon National Park provides first-hand descriptions and detailed maps for all the developed trails as well as tips on safety, hiking with children, access, and services. This guide also includes indispensable information on backcountry regulations, permits, and water sources. Veteran hiking guidebook autor Ron Adkinson also recommends his favorite routes from easy day hikes suitable for novices and small children to moderate and extended backpack trips for intrepid wilderness travelers.

Be sure to take along Hiking Grand Canyon National Park the next time you visit the Grand Canyon - where quiet, solitude, and nature’s improbable secrets await you.
