2009 trail conditons grand canyon on 03/01/2009 09:11:59 MST Print View

We are doing a rim to rim to rim trip at the end of this month (last weekend of march). We will be going via the kaibab trail and exiting the bright angel trail.

does anyone have current information on the trail conditions on the north kaibab? is it going to be doable?

I'll be up there next weekend for a dayhike down to the river. I'm expecting ice on the upper sections of the trails. Nothing that instep crampons and trekking poles can't handle. I'll post when I get back with the actual conditions.

small group of BPL'ers doing it this weekend. want to know what to expect on the north side (cottonwood to north rim via kaibab trail). is it going to be possible with trail runners and short gaiters? will it be necessary to bring microspikes?
