If you love hike (as we do) don't miss hiking the gorge trail!
The guide book lists the center of the trail as unpassible due to rockslides and that makes enjoyment of the gorge difficult without multiple trips down and back out of the gorge. Hopefully the trail will be repaired next spring and everyone can once again enjoy hiking down from the Falls past the Whirlpool, and down to Devil's Hole!
Being quite adventureous we bushwacked through the slide (no worse than some other off-trail adventures in the Grand Canyon and easier than one in Glacier) and had a great 14 mile trek within a rock throw of rapids who's size and features dwarfed every set of rapids on the upper Grand Canyon!
Not only a great hike, with incredible scenery; but I don't think we saw 30 people in the 7 miles!
