    West Rim Trail 5/10-12th

    Looking to get away from work and head up to the PA grand canyon. I'm planning to leave friday and finish up sometime sunday. I figured this would be a good warm up hike for this hiking season and im feeling a bit out of shape and dont think i can pull a 20 mile day this early in the season, so i plan on taking it easy and take in the sites.

    It would be cool to have a fellow HF'er or more to come along.

    I will have to check with my social director but I might be able to make it work out. Were you going to hike NOBO or SOBO? I ask because I hiked it solo three years ago SOBO. I'm not up for really long days yet either, but I think I could hike it in two (16 mile) days hanging on the north side of Bradly Whales again, would this work for you?
    Peace,

    Sounds good to me Gris, i was planning on doing it nobo if i was solo, but im up for anything. were you planning on doing 1 or 2 nights, i usually like to do a minimum of 2 so it feels a little more worth the drive up there. ive never hiked this trail before so it should be a good time, i have heard good things.

    If I can go I can only get away for one night (sorry). It was a great trail and I would like to hike it NOBO as well.

    If you're able to go i have a plan that will work out. My cousin may be coming as well, we will probably start off friday afternoon and head north and walk to the MST connector trail. We will camp there for the night, my cousin and I can check out the falls and what not to keep us plenty busy. If you can get to the trail head sometime saturday morning and meet us at the connector trail we can walk the rest of the way together. Not to shabby of a plan if i say so, let me know if it sounds good to you.

    Sorry yooz85 my ego was writing checks that my body and calender can't cash. You came up with a great plan I just can't make it work on my end. I hope you all have a great time and hope to see you and the others down the trail in the future.
    Peace,
