Grand Canyon Maps

South kaibab Trail (South Rim) The South Kaibab trail offers wonderful views all along the trail and makes it very easy to loose track of how far down you have hiked. Be aware of how far you have hiked, the steepness of the trail is very misleading on the way down. Cedar Ridge has great views and is an ideal day hike.

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.
