Boucher-Hermit Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is the classic Grand Canyon loop hike, easily reached via paved roads on the South Rim. While none of the trails are regularly maintained, the Hermit Trail is considered the easiest of the old Grand Canyon Trails.
The Boucher Trail, while well-traveled, was not built to the same standards as the Hermit, and it is steeper and rougher. By doing this loop clockwise, you’ll have the easier Hermit Trail for the long climb to the South Rim."
