Embark on a challenge that will push you to your limits and reward you with awe-inspiring sights. Explore the renowned "Red Canyon," a geologically distinctive landmark in Grand Canyon National Park. Pitch your tent beside the rushing Colorado River and marvel at its tumultuous rapids, surrounded by the tranquility of a remote, wild area of the Grand Canyon. This once-in-a-lifetime backpacking excursion will take you on a descent down one of the most stunning trails in the canyon and an ascent up one of the most exhilarating.

On the first day, hike down the thrilling Grandview Trail to Horseshoe Mesa and discover the Cave of the Domes and ancient mining ruins. Then, delve deeper into the canyon by hiking off the mesa and camping on the Tonto Plateau above the Inner Gorge. Here, you'll have a unique viewpoint of the towering cliffs and rims of the North Rim.

The next phase of your adventure will take you east on the Tonto Trail to the Colorado River, the beginning of the grand Granite Gorge. Depending on our progress we will make camp up above the Redwall or lower in Red Canon at a charming spot near a spring. Red Canyon's lower elevations are comprised primarily of the brilliant crimson Hakatai Shale, one of the most spectacular formations in the canyon. On the final day, you'll conquer the ascent back to the South Rim via the New Hance Trail.
