Thought we would try something different having been on bright angel and Kaibob.....lots of snow and ice in February. Quite a workout. Lots of uneven rock to scramble through. Several sections are dry packed rock on edge, very interesting. We made it as far as three mile when we ran out of time and had to head up. Views not... 更多
Only words I can use are that this is one amazing walk. Hermits rest is a psectacular place to stop and take in the stunning view of the Grand Canyon
As I am unable to walk very far and the park ranger noticed my handicapped sticker, he issued us a day pass to drive the Hermit Trail. What a bonus for us, we could stop virtually anywhere there are designated pull-ins (watch out for the free buses bringing hikers from the valley floor!), see and photograph the views and not... 更多
This was a challenging trail--I am not going to down play that fact but so worth it! It was so peaceful and way less crowded than Bright Angel. I even felt like some of the trail was better maintained. We only hiked part of the way--took about half the day. We were pretty tired after but a good tired! Do... 更多
This trail is even not listed on the pocket trail map on the National Park, so it attracts way less people as compared with Bright Angel trail. Nevertheless, this is the trail you need to take if you want to avoid the crowd at Grand Canyon. The view of the canyon on the trail is gorgeous! It is recommended on... 更多
Hiked to Dripping Springs from this trailhead. By it's name we did not expect much when we reached the spring. Well it "drips" from above while you are under a rock outcrop. The best part is that the water is not dripping but coming down at a rate that when you stand under it you get a shower. After hiking... 更多
The reason I'm giving this hike only 3 out of 5 stars is simply because the other more famous hikes (Bright Angel and South Kaibab) are much more scenic day hikes. However, if you want a much less frequented trail, you should go for this one. In addition the trailhead starts at the end of a bus line, where you... 更多
If you are lucky enough to get a seat on the right side of the bus, this is a great way to see lots more of the canyon. Lots of stops along the way to get some great pictures. Facilities are located at Hermit's Rest.
It is challenging. Bring plenty of water. Great 360 degree views from Lookout point and a lot less people that the Bright Angel trail. Enjoy!!
We totally enjoyed our hike of the Hermit Trail. With so much to see and do in Grand Canyon National Park it is hard to decide; however, we loved our visit here.
