DescriptionThe South Kaibab Trail drops from the South Rim down to Colorado River at the bottom of the canyon. You can choose from a variety of day hikes by hiking to various points along the trail. Many of the best canyon views are near the start of the trail. The trip all the way to the bottom and back should only be done as an overnight backpacking trip.
The South Kaibab Trail begins south of Yaki Point on Yaki Point Road. Access to the trailhead is by shuttle bus. Water is available at the trailhead.
The trail is well defined and quite steep. There is little shade. Mules use this trail.
