Description
South Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon offers a stunning hiking experience. Located the Grand Canyon's south rim, this 6.3 mile trail provides extensive and stunning views of the canyon. South Kaibab ... Read more
Trail is one of the Grand Canyons less traveled trails, because it lacks any real shade and is fairly steep, it descends more than 4,500 feet to the river located below. Although South Kaibab Trail is more difficult than other Grand Canyon trails, it is the most scenic trail in the park. When you hit this trail, leave very early in the morning and bring plenty of water to compensate for the intense heat.
