This is by far the most popular trail, but it's understandable why. The trail is very well maintained and even offers rest houses, compost bathrooms, and water at 1.5 miles, 3 miles, and I think 6 miles. Don't quote me on the last one. We only went as far as the 3 mile rest house. Everything about this trail is fantastic. It's nice to be able to actually get into the Canyon for a different perspective, even if only a few miles. I recommend at least going to the 3 mile rest house if you can, time and experience permitting. It's approximately 2000' down into the canyon, so keep that in mind when you think of the hike back up, but it will give you a good mid level view of things. I won't go into preparations and precautions here, but if you're an inexperienced or novice hiker, please check out the Canyon's page at nps.gov for information. It is best to be prepared for trails going into the Canyon
