Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, 11/27 at 6 p.m.
2019 marks our 21st trip to the canyon since 1992. We will be flying as a group to Phoenix and riding in 3 vans to the canyon. We are planning on two hiking groups, both of which will hike a 25 - 40 mile trail the entire week, depending on permits. Needless to say, the Grand Canyon is incredibly beautiful, awesome and spectacular. Designed for the experienced backpacker, we will allow enthusiastic beginners on this trip. Everyone who goes must be in good physical shape by the time we leave. Participants are expected to attend one of two all day sessions on a Saturday in 2019. This will involve a Pre-Canyon Hike, lunch, and a meeting following the hike. Expected duration: 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, but specific dates are yet to be determined. Note: this trip will not be offered again until March 2021.
Estimate trip duration: 6:30 a.m. Saturday, 3/2 - 7 p.m. Sunday, 3/10
COST INCLUDES: all transportation, in-canyon food, hotel on both ends of the trip, group equipment, permits, camping and entrance fees. Space is limited to the first 18 people that sign up, so don't delay.
