Our family visited the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in July. We hiked a portion of the Kaibab Trail with 2 adults and 3 boys, ages 13, 9, and 7. We are a family who likes to hit the trails when we visit the National Parks and are not new to hiking. We knew that this trail would be a challenge and we were right. We hiked below the rim for a couple of miles, then had a picnic lunch before we hiked back out. The returning trip was very difficult for our party and we had to take lots of rest breaks. The temperatures were so high (1OO degrees +) that it made the hike even more of a challenge. Thankfully, we carried plenty to drink and didnt rush the hike, which made it more enjoyable. It was one of those hikes that we were happy to finally make it back to the trail head, but thankful that we took the hike. It was a memorable experience.
