Bright Angel Trail
Bright Angel Trail was turned over to the National Park Service in 1928 but its history in the Grand Canyon goes back thousands of years, its approximate route navigated by the region’s Native American cultures for generations. Today it’s one of the most popular Grand Canyon hikes and often combined with the South Kaibab Trail for a longer excursion. Bright Angel is a shaded trail with plenty of natural water, so that means more plant and animal life for you to view. From Indian Garden, there’s a must-see creek side trail that snakes through ravines of water-sculpted stone and verdant Cottonwood trees. You could also rent a cruiser or road bike from Bright Angel Bicycles and meander along the paved Greenway Trail.
