Grand Canyon Hiker on Tonto Trail

Join us for an inspirational and informative talk on Backpacking the Grand Canyon at REI Sacramento.

Co-founder of the Grand Canyon Challenge, Chris Casado is passionate about exploring one of our world’s natural wonders. He’s spent countless days hiking into hidden gorges, following natural springs, and sleeping on the beaches of the Colorado River. Join Chris on a digital journey of his favorite Grand Canyon adventure, a rugged 35 mile loop with a trip to the Colorado. Spend the evening exploring some of the Canyon’s least traveled regions, and meeting its wildlife. Learn the nuts and bolts of preparing for a multi-day Grand Canyon trek, including permits, trail options, gear, Leave No Trace, safety and weather considerations. Learn tips on making your Grand Canyon experience rewarding for families and individuals of all ages.
