Hidden Treasures

Post by SabrinaHikesAZ on Tue Dec 13, 2016 11:58 pm

This Topic is dedicated to those cool spots that only guides (well very few people) know about in the Canyon! We can share all those cool places that are only known by spending a ton of time below the rim. From the blue and green rooms in Havasupai to the Cave of the Domes off of Horseshoe Mesa. Please include in your Post Reply: hidden places, favorite spots, cool places off the beaten path, amazing view points, ruins, petroglyphs, favorite campsites and why. Also, if possible please add photos or maps to help other guides find these awesome places.

New Tracks

Post by SabrinaHikesAZ on Wed Dec 14, 2016 12:07 am

To start off this Topic, I thought I would let everyone know about something NEW in the Canyon. So recently there was a rock fall and a clean up that included some blasting. When it was all said and done some new animal tracks on the Bright Angel Trail were discovered. They are right on the trail at about 2.5 miles down. Please take a few minutes to check out the link below so that you can show your guests this cool rock! It would be hard to miss since it is massive and facing the trail!

New Fossilized Tracks on Bright Angel Trail

Post by mblaylo1 on Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:25 pm

I recently ran a trip on the Bright Angel trail and found the new tracks that have been exposed. They are between 2.5 and 2.75 miles down from the rim. So around 4 switchbacks up from 3 mile rest house. They are located on the outside of the trail and they are oriented so you have a better chance of seeing them as you hike up the trail.

Below is the video i took of the tracks. If you have trouble locating them, let me know and ill try and give you more specific instructions on their location.

I hope everyone knows about the tracks on the Hermit Trail. They are on the left hand side of the trail when you are heading down and they are right after the human made wall that almost looks like stairs if you turn to look back up the trail. The better tracks are straight in front of you when you hit the switch back. if you are looking towards the south there is Juniper tree off to your right.
