Nankoweap - Bright Angel Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This scenic loop takes you through spectacular geology of the eastern Grand Canyon, past permanent streams and towering, cliff-bound buttes and mesas. In the eastern Grand Canyon, colorful layers of the Grand Canyon series of rock formations meet the somber, ancient metamorphic rocks of the Granite Gorge, creating a dramatic change in the shape of the Grand Canyon’s floor.
Most of this loop is seldom traveled and you’re unlikely to meet any other hikers on the cross-country section of the loop. Campfires are not allowed in the national park backcountry. Along the North Kaibab Trail near the end of the loop, camping is only allowed in designated campgrounds. Pets are not allowed on trails or in the backcountry."
