This newly revised guide features many full-color photographs and up-to-date trail information. Most people take their first hike into the canyon on the Bright Angel Trail. Both water and resthouses are available, making this trail appealing to day hikers and those intending to descend the 9.3 miles from the trailhead to the Bright Angel Campground on the canyon's floor. This guide notes points of interest along the entire length of the trail and provides historical and interpretive information. Two maps are included.
