GRAND CANYON ~ PLATEAU POINT

 

THREE DAYS. ~ .TWENTY MILES

This popular route to the bottom of the Grand Canyon begins with a 7.6 mile hike down the South Kaibab Trail to Phantom Ranch, where there are both camping and dormitory facilities. Couples may opt to be married on the morning of the second day in the Phantom Ranch area prior to hiking up the Bright Angel Trail 4.6 miles to the Indian Garden Campground.
An alternate {suggested} option is to hike from Indian Garden 1.5 miles to Plateau Point later in the day and have the wedding just prior to sunset, when the spectacular views are all the more breathtaking in late afternoon light.
A final 4.6 mile hike up the Bright Angel Trail completes this memorable three day adventure. We recommend spending more time in the Grand Canyon if at all possible and are happy to coordinate with couples to meet them at their preferred location if they choose an extended itinerary.

The best times of year for this trip are October - December and March - April. In the summer, inner canyon temperatures can be well over 100 degrees so hiking is discouraged between the hours of 10am and 4pm.

This route, like all others in Grand Canyon National Park, requires a permit, advance reservations, and some planning. For more information, please visit the National Park website or the Grand Canyon website.
