South Kaibab Trail

Ridge trail with places to get away and an amazing overlook of the Colorado River

The South Kaibab Trail is a ridge trail that offers you those giant Grand Canyon 360 degree views you are expecting and dreaming of. With ooh-ah point being our first stop, you will stand at the edge of a huge drop off and overlook Cremation Canyon. We will then head on down to Cedar Ridge for a hearty snack. This is 1.5 miles from the trail-head and offers time to explore and get some great pictures of the wide-open canyon. We will continue hiking along the ridges to our next destination. Giant overlooks of the Tonto Platform and the canyons ability to make you feel like an ant, will be on this next section. Our next stop is Skeleton Point where we get our first view of the powerful Colorado River. You are able to get away from the trail here and enjoy lunch overlooking the Colorado River. This will be our turn around point unless you want to go further. Of course your guide will make the decision as we want you to have the most exciting day possible and remain safe.

At Only Grand Canyon Day Hikes, we use only name brand gear. Our packs are made by Camelbak and our trekking poles are Mountainsmith. We include a free brand new bladder for every hiker coming with us in the canyon. Having been a gear tester for Backpacker Magazine, I understand how being properly outfitted can be the difference between a dream hike and a nightmare trip. Please call or e-mail anytime with questions from what boot to consider to which materials are best for the canyon.
