We hiked up the Bright Angel Trail from Phantom Ranch, and Indian Garden was a wonderful oasis along the way. The cottonwood trees make it a leafy, shaded, area of green very different from most of the trail.

There are bathrooms and water available, as well as benches to rest on. This was a pretty stopping place! Note that if you're hiking up, the trail isn't bad to Indian Gardens - uphill but not too steep. Once you're past Indian Gardens, things get steeper!

Walking down to Indian Garden is easy. The trail is wide and maintained and descends in a switch-back fashion. There are picnic tables, large trees, and water at Indian Garden. The climb up to the rim top can be very strenuous if you are not an experienced climber. The last 3 1/2 miles seem to go on forever. There is water along the trail and places to stop and rest. Be sure to bring plenty of snacks to refuel your body as you will use lots of energy climbing upward. I suggest at least one walking stick and possibly two. The temperature increases as you go down the trail so dress in layers. This is a great experience but it is also one that needs serious planning before attempting.
