Hiked this trail down to Phantam Ranch on 10/31 and saw spectacular scenery. Although there was alot of smoke in the canyon from controlled burns, there were still tremendous views offered by the canyon. This trail is a little steeper than Bright Angel but was still fairly easy to hike down. We trained for many months before this trip and still had a hard time on the climb back up, so know your limits.
