The hikes of the Inner Canyon is very different from the hikes up on the South or North Rims or the trails going down from the Rims into the Canyon. I spent two nights at Phantom Ranch and then had the afternoon of the first day and the whole of the second day for the Inner Canyon. You have to... More

We were lucky to walk down and up and explore many trails of the inner canyon spending also three days in Phantom Ranch. It will forever be one of better hiking trips of our life. The beauty of Grand Canyon can be appreciated in quite a different way when you are down below the rim. There are trails from the... More

get yourself in physical shape and make the hike. The beauty in the canyon is worth seeing just as much as it is on the rim.

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!

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!
