Overview

The book was revised and updated January 2014, and the print edition was redesigned for a cleaner layout and easier reading.

Whether your interest in the Grand Canyon is in a quick look from a few of the rim view points, a week-long whitewater trip on the Colorado River, a stay in a lodge on the very edge of the canyon, a walk along a rim trail, camping in the rim forest, or hiking down into the canyon, this book is for you.

Grand Canyon Guide has two major parts, Activities and Exploring. In Activities, you find out how to get to the Grand Canyon and what do do once you're there. Exploring The Canyon is for those who want to learn more about the national park, national monument, national forest, and Indian reservations that all have a part in managing the lands of the Grand Canyon region. You can also learn more about the natural and human history of the Grand Canyon.
