Hermits Rest Hike - Level 2


Explore little known springs hidden in the depths of the Grand Canyon.  Abundant shade, maidenhair fern, crimson monkey flowers and wild grapes surround these rare water sources.  Over 80% of the canyon's biodiversity surrounds these springs.  The trail drops steeply at first, but levels out nicely for the second hapf of the hike.

This hiking trip includes a very small tailored group (normally 6 or less people) and includes a back pack, picnic lunch, and hiking poles.  It is highly recommended to book this trip early as availablity is extremely limited.
