Elevation Change: 5,000
Time of Year Best: Year-round
Recommended Maps: Grand Canyon Map Pack Bundle
Summary: Hiking into the Canyon, obviously you are descending first. Before going, know your limits, know the weather conditions, know the trail, and get yourself a good map. This in particular is a tough hike; steep going down, and a long gradual hike out. Water is erratically dispersed in different areas. You will need a water purifier. I highly recommend the Katadyn Hiker PRO Water Microfilter. The conditions can be drastically different depending on if it is summer, winter, monsoon, or freezing. The hermit trail portion of the trail has been reported to have been washed out in some spots. So there will be some scrambling.
