Bright Angel Trail is one of the most popular trails at Grand Canyon National Park. It is well maintained and has water stations and covered rest houses along its path. But until recently, the trailhead itself was mostly neglected. It was difficult to find, only had temporary restroom facilities, and had no comfortable place for people to sit and enjoy the view or prepare for hikes.
Grand Canyon Conservancy supporters contributed funds to restore the plaza and add visitor amenities. The trailhead now features:
Location: The Bright Angel trailhead is located in the South Rim Historic District, just west of Bright Angel Lodge.
contributed by 460 supporters
new landscaped plants
new paved parking places
age of trailhead before restoration
new trailhead opened
GCC Supporters helped create a welcoming entryway to one of the world's premier hiking trails.
