Bright Angel Trail
For many hikers, the Bright Angel Trail, which cuts through ribbed-red cliffs along narrow and often-steep pathways, is the entry point to the Grand Canyon. The winding walkway is replete with history: People have walked the route for centuries, many in search of water, resources and a way out of the rocky maze. Add your footsteps to the story by hiking the 9.3-mile UNESCO World Heritage Site to the Indian Garden campground; during the summer months, avoid extensive climbing between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when daytime temperatures rise.
