2. Moderate Tanner-Grandview Trails
(Threshold, Primitive Zones) Connect two South Rim trails on this 37-mile, five-day hike via the Escalante Route, a cairned path perfect for testing navigation skills. Trip ID: 515868

3. Moderate Rim-to-Rim via North Kaibab Trail (Corridor Zone) Cross the heart of the Grand on this 21-mile traverse. Tip: Start on the higher North Rim for more downhill miles. Trip ID: 644736

Head start For a shorter variation of the Tanner-Grandview hike (#2), with similar solitude but easier routefinding, start at the New Hance trailhead.
