  • Tuesday, May 18: Rim to rim hikers begin at 4:30 AM; cars depart for South Rim at 11:00 AM (201 miles/5 hours); hikers and cars meet at South Rim trailhead at 6:30 PM; rooms at Yavapai Lodge (2).

(1) Two cabins, each with 2 double beds, are reserved at the Kaibab Lodge and have been pre-paid by Rick Davis (2 persons per cabin; $78 per person per night… singles may be available, but have not been reserved).

(2) Four motel rooms, each with 2 double beds, are reserved at the Yavapai Lodge and have been pre-paid by Rick
Davis (1 person per room; $107 per night… 2 persons can share a room; other rooms may be available).
(3) Two cabins, as (1) above

 

We will start from the North Rim, because elevation, temperature and time of day make it easier to go down from the North Rim, than to come up after starting from the South Rim.

 

All rooms in the area will fill up soon! Rooms are already sold out at the North Rim’s Grand Canyon Lodge. The Kaibab Lodge is a 20 minute drive to the trailhead. Most rooms at the South Rim are sold out, although rooms were still available at Yavapai Lodge, as of 02/02/2010.

 

If you would like to stay in the accommodations reserved by Rick Davis, mail him a check for $448 (address below) and call his cell phone (904) 710-9159. When Rick’s rooms are filled, other rooms may be reserved directly. Rooms sometimes become available because of cancellations. Rooms farther away, at Tusayan or Kanab, are usually available on short notice.
