Set out early to tackle one of the harder portions of the rim-to-rim hike. Only 4.5 miles, but most of this trek is straight up. Shuttle back to North Rim is waiting -- if you make it by 1:30 p.m. -- so get going. Backpacking adventure in Grand Canyon National Park begins at North Rim and ends at South Rim with stops at Cottonwood, Bright Angel (Phantom Ranch), and Indian Gardens. Kevin and Lorrie Cesarz made the trip in September (7-10) of 2010. It was Lorrie's first Grand Canyon experience, Kevin's second.
