Had visited the GC twice prior, but never hiked below the rim. Used the SK as my trip down to stay at the Bright Angel Campground for a quick solo overnight and then back up via the Bright Angel Trail. The SK was an excellent trail down. I started at 5am to avoid the heat, took a few photos - but being solo - I didn't have a lot of chatting time obviously - made it down at a relatively easy pace....and was at the campground by 7:30am.

Hiked from Bright Angle Campground up the Kaibab to the Rim. Camp overnight, outstanding!
