Hiking the Grand Canyon opens up a complete range of outdoor experiences, describing the rigors, attractions, and landmarks of more than 100 of the Canyon's best trails. It provides detailed, authoritative trail and route descriptions for strenuous but rewarding hikes to and from the Colorado River, as well as relatively easy day hikes along the Canyon's North and South Rims.

John Annerino offers seasoned advice on lodging, hiking equipment and technique, safety, weather and clothing, food requirements, map selection, and wilderness ethics to help users plan their trips and enhance their enjoyment of the Grand Canyon's natural wonders. Also included are discussions of the park's Native American history, natural history and geology, and tips on rafting and pack-animal excursions.
