Bright Angel Trail At The Grand Canyon

The park's most famous and popular trail is the Bright Angel trail which starts near the Bright Angel Lodge. The trailhead is just west of the main activity in Grand Canyon Village. You can see it just below you from inside Kolb Studio.

This trail traverses a seemingly unending series of switchbacks down the canyon wall before leveling out somewhat around the oasis of Indian Gardens.

Most hikers will traverse only a portion of this trail, and the park recommends that day hikers never attempt to go further than Indian Gardens. Winter hikers should note that the top two miles of this trail are likely to be icy.
