Grand Canyon Trails

More than 400 miles of trails lead visitors through a geological and ecological marvel, fostering once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Your support ensures that our trails remain world-class and safe for all visitors.

Grand Canyon National Park: South Kaibab Trail

Grand Canyon National Park sees millions of visitors every year and tens of thousands of those visitors travel from around the world to venture below the rim. More than 400 miles of trails lead visitors through a geological and ecological marvel, on a journey of connection, escape, and perspective.

Trails are the heart of Grand Canyon National Park. World-class trails mean safe and satisfied visitors and allow staff, scientists, and rescue workers to move quickly and effectively to important locations within the park. Rain, wind, storms, snow, and legions of hikers can quickly turn excellent trails into dangerous ones. Your support helps fund the ongoing maintenance and repair of these trails.

“The Grand Canyon cannot take care of itself. With over six million visitors to the park each year, trails are impacted and the park needs help to maintain them. The Trails Forever endowment fund is a powerful and secure way to support the canyon trails we love in perpetuity.”

Howard Theile & Family

“Words cannot describe all Grand Canyon has to offer: amazing vistas, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, spectacular hiking and rafting. We contribute to trail preservation and educational programs, which are not always funded by federal dollars. Yet, they are important because they allow everyone to stay connected to Grand Canyon. We will continue to support GCC to afford other families the same opportunity.”
