Hermit Trail (South Rim) The Hermit trail day hikes are to Santa Maria Springs and Dripping Spring. Trail conditions are tougher than the Bright Angel and South Kaibab trails. 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.
