From the director– “Join my three hiking partners and me as we begin hiking in the Grand Canyon for the first time. We fumble (and sometimes stumble) down the dusty scenic trails while discovering the magnificent wonders of the canyon. Originally, we had all planned for that first hike to be our only trip to the bottom, but that is not the way things worked out. We are all obsessed with the canyon and have returned again and again. We think you will feel the same way. Explore the Bright Angel Trail down to the Colorado River and Phantom Ranch. If you are adventurous, take the steep and dry South Kaibab Trail. For the most awe inspiring views from the main trails, creep along the towering cliffs of the North Kaibab Trail. Learn about permits, techniques and skills that you need to camp in the inner canyon. Find out what to expect when you reach Indian Garden, Bright Angel and Cottonwood campgrounds. Take side trips from the main trails to sites that many people never see. Get a close up view of the plants and animals that live in the bottom of canyon–some of them unique to the area. Experience the solitude and clear beauty of the North Rim in winter. You may be the only person camping on the North Rim! Also, a preview of the Hermit and Clear Creek Trails with exciting footage of rafters going through Granite Rapids. Most of all, learn how to be safe and enjoy your experience hiking and backpacking in the Grand Canyon.”

Great for a beginner! I’m dreaming of hiking the Grand Canyon for the first time and this DVD has been very helpful! Lots of information about services along many of the trails and what to expect when you get to the campgrounds. Beautiful scenery is a bonus!

Fantastic Resource!! I love this DVD, it is so informative & well done! I am new to backpacking & this has given me so much information & has been an invaluable tool. With this DVD you are able to research the trails & have a much better idea what lies ahead when hiking the Grand Canyon. Even if you are not a backpacker the scenery alone makes this purchase worth every penny. Thanks for this great resource!
