PH89,
Doing to head there on Friday. Have a 40' coach. Do you have suggestion on location/site I should ask for? I would like to be able to use my directv. How long did it take you to hike to the bottom?

Thanks

If I was to go again I would ask for site#76, that is the site in my photo. My direct TV worked just fine in that spot. We did not hike to the bottom this trip, maybe next time. Talked to other that did, full day to the bottom, stay at the ranch in the bottom, hike back out the next day or maybe stay down there a couple of days and hike and horse back around.

Ok. Sites are most all pull thru. Plenty big. Saw a couple 42+ footers pulling jeeps.

Walked to bottom down the Kaibab trail in 6 hours. Stayed at Phantom Ranch overnight. Then hiked out the Bright Angel Trail. In 9 hours

I am 65 year old in good health but never hiked or back backed in my life. Wasn't too bad going down but really tuff coming up.

May do it again next year but I'll probably train a little for it next time. Lol

There is a sign at the top of the Bright Angel Trail. It reads:

Down is optional, UP is mandatory.
