Top Grand Canyon Hikes

Hike The South Kaibab Trail To Skeleton Point

I've hiked hundreds of miles in the Grand Canyon, and here are my top picks for hikes at all levels. Also, there are many trails in the Grand Canyon, and you could create hundreds of different routes. I'm only recommending day hikes that the National Parks Service also recommends. If you've got a lot of experience hiking in the Grand Canyon already, you'll be able to put your adventures together. These hikes are best suited for newer folks hiking in the Grand Canyon.
