SilvrSurfr and I have agreed to follow 2Questions' suggestion and start from the south end. We plan to leave our car at the north end and get a shuttle from Pine Creek Outfitters to our trailhead which is about a quarter of a mile west of the Blackwell Hotel. Friday night's campsite is a mile and a half up the Bohen Run Trail before it turns away from Pine Creek.
We'll head up to the intersection with the West Rim Trail then hike north to an area just after Bradley Wales picnic area and hang our hammocks in the pines overlooking the canyon on Saturday night. We'll finish up the next day.
I've found some great maps and GPX files while researching this trip. Here are some links:
Also, download this
GPX file. Save them to your hard drive and go to GPS Visualizer
and load them up.
Check out the waypoints along the trails. Pretty neat. Clicking on the trail name toggles it on or off. There are overlapping tracks.
We're looking forward to some great hiking and hanging in the fall foliage. A big thank you out to 2Questions for his inside poop on where to hang.
