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!!!

A definite bucket list activity, you do need to be trail fit but it is so worth it. Looking down the canyon from the silver bridge is a place where you certainly recharge the batteries for the soul.

Seeing the canyon from inside looking up is an unusual and amazing way to view this structure. The colors of everything seem to change - from the trees (they're greener!) to the rocks, to the ground cover. There are also some fauna to see, like some deer and other animals. The hike down is challenging, and to get down to... More

Saw this on the mule trip. Had never even seen pictures of this before. Oh Jesus corner, hells furnace! Wow! Unbelievable views. Probably three and a half hours from top of trail. I'll never forget this.

The hike into and out of the inner canyon is only done by <1% of visitors to the canyon. While the view from the rim is obviously an experience in itself. The walk into the canyon and views and serenity and wildlife cannot be described. As others on this site have stated - do your homework and BE PREPARED -... More

Very few visitors to the Grand Canyon ever step of one of the rims and into the Canyon, but it's arguably the best way to truly appreciate this natural wonder. I've done the South Kaibab-Bright Angel hike, as well as a recent R2R hike from north to south. Be sure to be in good shape and do your research before... More

this one was tougher with the high heat, broken water line on the toughest part of our S to N hike. Really need to be prepared with large water carrying capacity, food, weather changes so you want to travel light but survival should take precidence. Ribbon Falls was a stop this time and well worth, especially to get proposed to... More

Venturing into the Inner Canyon gives you an opportunity to get up close and personal with the different layers of rock, the wildlife of the canyon, and its unique flora. It's a worthwhile adventure, whether you complete the whole Rim-Rim-Rim or just take a 3 mile RT on Bright Angel Trail. You can experience the canyon on foot or take... More

Without taking Inner Canyon trip your visit is to Grand Canyon is not complete. You will be taken to bottom of the grand canyon where you can enjoy boat riding and can have close look to wildlife. It is all together different experience.
