Grand Canyon National Park Grandview Trail

The Grandview trail day hikes are to Coconino Saddle or Horseshoe Mesa. Trail conditions are tougher than the Bright Angel and South Kaibab trails. Trail gets steeper and more tricky beyond Coconino Saddle. Allow extra hiking time because of trail conditions. Hiking boots a must. Only recommended for experienced desert hikers.

Everyone needs to carry water! A common mistake is not carrying water and not carrying enough water. When hiking in a group, each person should be carrying water; carrying for the group is a common mistake. Always remember to eat as well as drink while hiking , you will be using alot of energy when hiking the canyon.
