A few resources to help you enjoy a hike at the Grand Canyon.
Grand Canyon Hikers And Backpackers Association
Please be prepared before attempting a hike in the canyon. In 1921 the Grand Canyon National Park booklet said, "It is a sad mistake for persons not in the soundest physical training to attempt it on foot, for the apparent distance as seen from the rim is misleading, and the climb back is most arduous at that elevation...Nearly every day one or more trampers, overconfident of their endurance, find the way up too arduous and have to be assisted by guides and mules sent down for them from the rim." Very little has changed since 1921.
