Hello ladies! In honor of Arizona Trail Day - AZT in One Day - we will be hiking a 6.7 mile one-way track to South Kaibab Trailhead. This was one of the only open areas when I choose this segment and now has a LOT of other people signed up. We will be hiking a small portion of Passage 37. The logistics are a little interesting, but will discuss those with whoever signs up! The 10 person limit is not me - its the organizers of the event. 

LOGISTICS: Since this is a one-way hike, we will have to arrange getting people back to their car at the trailhead. We can talk more about this closer to the hike when I know who is actually attending! But please feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions! 

NOTE: For those that have an interest, I have booked 3 campsites at Mather Campground for that day/night. This portion will be UNOFFICIAL and is CO-ED. This may help with logistics - I know it will for me! My thought is to get there, check out the area, see a sunset, wake up and see a sunrise, hike down to Ooh Aah Point , etc. Lots to do at the Canyon!

Bring snacks/food/and lots of water (more than you think you need). 
If you want to camp, think about backpacking in with your gear. The camping portion is 'unofficial' so open to others joining.
