Geocache Description:

Canyoneering-Nankoweap GC

The Nankoweap Trail

This trail is classified as MOST difficult of the named trails in Grand Canyon.

It has the largest total rim-to-river drop (5640 ft / 1735 m) and is one of the longest trails. Hikers must be experienced in canyon route finding; this trail is not recommended for inexperienced or solo hikers. The Nankoweap Trail is not enjoyable as a summer hike as there is no water and little shade until Nankoweap Creek. The hike will require a minimum of 4 to 6 liters of water per person, per day.


Please see the Related Web Page for more details

Unless you are an extreme hiker, you should plan on 2-4 nights.
