*** GET YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS ***
We suggest booking now so you get the best rates and availability. You will want to get your accommodations in the area you will be after this hiking event.
Inside the Park Area
– Bright Angel Lodge, El Tovar Hotel, Maswik Lodge, Kachina Lodge, Yavapai Lodge, and more (http://www.grandcanyonlodges.com)
* Closest to meeting point, but a bit expensive.
Outside the Park Area
– Grand Canyon Village, AZ
* 15 minutes to meeting point
* Best Western Premier, Red Feather, Grand Canyon Hotel, Canyon Plaza Resort, and more.
* Slightly north of the Grand Canyon National Park Airport
* Closest to Park, but likely more expensive
– Williams, AZ (MAP)
* Econo Lodge, Motel 6, Grand Canyon Hotel, Rodeway Inn, The Lodge, El Rancho Motel, and more.
* Best variety of hotel/motels
* Easier in price
* About 1 hour drive to Park Entrance. Not a bad option since you’ll primarily be sleeping here.
* This is our best suggestion if you want something reasonable.
– Mather Campground (Inside the Park Area)
For those of you wanting to camp close to other hikers, we are suggesting getting your campsite at Mather Campground, AZ
