Living here in Las Vegas the trip is only a few hours drive to either the North or South Rim. The South Rim offers more paved roads, convenience, and crowds; the North is more relaxed with only 10% of the Grand Canyon visitors venturing here. You can hike the Kaibab Trail from either the North or South Rim but it begins at the North Rim. It's a fourteen mile hike across the Grand Canyon with water available on the path so you only need to carry a few bottles and refill them at the watering holes. Though the trail is easy to follow, the hike is not. Make sure you take a back pack with snacks and you will find a walking stick useful. Most people hike down to the Supia Tunnel, about 4 hours round trip, or the Roaring Springs, about 8 hours round trip, and back up they way they came, others hike all the way across and either hike back or catch the bus that goes from Rim to Rim, while others stay either at Cottonwood Camp Ground or at the Phantom Ranch Lodge and return by Mule. If you decide to go make sure you plan your trip well in advance. Permits are required and reservations at both Cottonwood Campground and Phantom Ranch. Remember this . . . over 250 people have to be evacuated from the canyon each year and there are no easy trails in or out. Mules rides can be booked at the Lodge and be ridden down to the Roaring Springs or Phantom Ranch and back.
