Welcome spring! We can’t wait to get into the Canyon in a few short days to kick off one of the most memorable and inspirational events in the Grand Canyon state. From a shared idea between two old college friends only a few short years ago, the Grand Canyon Challenge has quickly become recognized as one of the fastest growing and most inspirational experiences in the Grand Canyon.
This spring we are kicking off our 3rd Grand Canyon Challenge season with 5 outings, and an even larger slate of treks planned for this fall. Part of our success has come from our simplicity. We provide one experience in the Canyon, and do it really, really well. Each outing traverses the same 30+ mile route over 3 nights and 4 days. The outings are open to all ages, and really easy to join (just bring your hiking boots, personal items, and positive attitude – we’ll handle the rest!).
One caution. The trek can be intense! But that’s the point… Nothing worthwhile comes easy! The backpacking experience is remote, completely unplugged, and off the grid, in one of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders of our world. Its an experience that is physically demanding, and incredibly rewarding.
No matter your age, visiting the Grand Canyon is a memorable experience. But there’s something magical about getting away from the crowds, and dropping below the Rim into the Grand Canyon’s remote back country terrain. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for people of all different skill sets and experience levels to experience that magic, and put it to work for them – renewing the spirit, and kindling new inspiration that can last a lifetime.
