During this fun-sized learning excursion, a Field Institute instructor will weave the canyon's story on a 3.75 mile (6 km) guided walk on paved trails along the largely flat forested South Rim.
Use your first day to take in the extraordinary view from the canyon rim on a bike tour, or bring your own bike to use on the Greenway Trail and other designated bike paths. Then, on your second day, prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as you hike into the canyon and set up camp for the night (permit required). Spend the night admiring the stars, and hike back the next day. On your final day, relax in Market Plaza, grab dinner at Yavapai Lodge® and make sure you pick up a few souvenirs. Be sure to read up on hiking tips and ways to "hike smart" before you begin your hike.
