It is as good as it gets to go down into the inner canyon! One of the most amazing experiences you can have. It is much warmer down in the canyon than on the rim....carry plenty of water and take your time to enjoy and experience the canyon....best if you enjoy a night at Phantom a Ranch.

The inner canyon is SO COOL. Native ruins, trees, waterfalls, its an entire world down there that you could never understand at all without getting down in there. The eco diversity is crazy, this is hands down one of the most amazing places on the planets for sure.

Just be careful. It amazes me how few safety and guard rails there are. It is the Grand Canyon and it is steep. Bring plenty of fluids. Really nice people on the trail and the views are awesome.

The inner canyon is approx a mile down; easy to get down, it is very hot compared to the top so bring plenty of water and food, but a workout to get back up. But so well worth it!

My husband & I have been to the Grand Canyon 4 times and my husband has done 2 more with guy friends. We have done Kaibab to Bright Angel campsite, then out to Indian Gardens and up the Bright Angel trail multiple times. We have also done the rim-to-rim starting on the South Rim and exiting the North. I don't... More

The canyon from above and the canyon from within are two completely different experiences. Do not miss the chance to go into the canyon for at least half a mile. It will astound you!

This is not a walk in the park. Rather, it is a test of endurance. Know your body and heed every warning and recommendation. Book an overnight or two well in advance. Quality equipment is invaluable. Take backups and basic first aid. And stop and chat with people on the trail. I met the most interesting people at the Grand... More

Most people will only see the rim views, but if you are semi fit make the time and go for a walk. We walked to the bottom and spent the night and the journey was incredible. Breathe taking views along the way made the journey feel easy. The route was surprisingly gentle and had been designed well

The entire Grand Canyon experience is amazing if you take the time to hike a trail or go beyond a few minutes viewing it behind the Visitor's Center. The canyon is an incredible place that one could spend days or weeks touring. Definitely take your time, drive yourself and get out on some trails. You won't regret it!!!
