The Bright Angel Trail begins just west of Bright Angel Lodge and offers day hikes that range in distance up to 12 miles (round trip). Some shade. Seasonal water subject to pipeline breaks. Check at the Visitor Center or Backcountry Information Center for water status. Upper portion of the trail may be extremely icy in winter or early spring.
Leave plenty of time to walk back UP. Hard but very worth it.
WEAR GOOD HIKING SHOES!!!!
OK, who read "Brighty of the Grand Canyon" when they were a kid? This is it! And it's magnificent. You don't need to follow it very far to get the flavor of it.
