4 DAY/3 NIGHT WALKING ADVENTURE
Grand Canyon North Rim Adventure
Our Grand Canyon North Rim Adventure offer walks and hikes on some of the best trails in the entire National Park. It’s sometimes referred to as the “other” Grand Canyon because of the 6,000,000+ people who visit the park less than 10% of them come to the North Rim. While that is impressive, The Walking Connection will take you to places where less than 1% of the visitors to the Park ever set foot!
The trails we walk and hike are far different than anywhere else in Grand Canyon National Park. Though rugged and sometimes challenging (only if you want), the trails offer peaceful, spectacular and scenic views seen no where else on Earth. Your first short walk from your cabin downhill to Bright Angel Point offers one of the most spectacular views in the entire park! A warmup walk along the Transept Trail from the main lodge to the campground store not only offers close up views of the Canyon, it can end with a soft ice cream cone if you choose. We feature longer hikes on Widforss and Uncle Jim's Trail and for those seeking more adventure, a hike down the North Kaibab Trail will challenge even the most well-seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
You can walk and hike the North Rim with anyone, so what makes The Walking Connection's hosted North Rim Adventure special? In a word, People! Start with hosts, Jo Ann and Gene Taylor. They are co-founders of the organization and have been leading adventures around the world for 30 years! Next, meet some traveling members that have gone on this very trip for more than 11 consecutive years. There will be new faces with well-worn hiking boots, smiling faces with brand new boots; ALL are welcoming and friendly adventurers just looking to share a fun few days in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
We'll welcome you with a hosted pizza party and we’ll celebrate new-found and old friendships in Walking Connection style, with a sunset toast and dessert party under a million stars! You're invited to come hike Grand Canyon's North Rim with us!
