Hiking Grand Canyon Rim to Rim With Kids

Planning a trip hiking Grand Canyon Rim to Rim with kids can feel daunting, but it is well worth the effort.  Our Rim to Rim hike in the Grand Canyon is one of our favorite family travel memories. We hiked from the North Rim down the North Kaibab Trail to Phantom Ranch and hiked up the South Rim via the Bright Angel Trail and we had an amazing time!  It truly was an adventure we will never forget. Read on to see how we planned our hike and what the experience was like for us.  Happy Travels!
