These Are The 6 Easiest Trails You Can Hike At Arizona’s Grand Canyon
Is the Grand Canyon on your 2018 bucket list? We think it should be! This natural wonder is one of the most incredible sights you will ever encounter and no photo can truly capture how vast the canyon is. Most people agree that the best way to truly appreciate its beauty is by hiking down to the canyon floor but, unfortunately, we’re not all able to do that. Time, money, and physical capabilities prevent many from being able to enjoy it from the bottom, but you can still hike some pretty easy trails on the canyon’s rims. If you’re hoping to explore a bit of the Grand Canyon before those crowds hit, now is the time! Here are six easy trails that offer beautiful views and you won’t even have to break a sweat.
Please note: the North Rim is closed each year from October 15 until May 15, so several of these trails are inaccessible during the off-season.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
