South Kaibab Trail to Skeleton Point
8.1 miles out and back
2100 feet of vert
No dogs allowed on Grand Canyon trails.
Take the shuttle bus to South Kaibab Trailhead and head on down into the canyon. Skeleton point is 4 miles down and the river is 6.3. We got a late start to the day and only decided to go down to Skeleton.
There's no water source anywhere on the trail up to that point. Bring lots of water, some snacks, and be friendly to people. Oh, and enjoy the views!
