Kaibab Plateau: South Professional Review and Guide
"As it follows the Kaibab Plateau Trail (Trail 101), this section of the Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) might just offer the easiest and most pleasant traveling along the entire 800-plus miles. It crosses a much overlooked and delightful area of northern Arizona, passing through an idyllic forest of spruce, pine, and aspen.
For about a mile, the trail dodges in and out of stately trees along the East Rim of the Grand Canyon, offering breathtaking views of Marble Canyon to the east and the Vermilion Cliffs to the north, the final Arizona landmark before the canyon country of Utah. Another attraction: water is plentiful except in drought conditions. You can camp almost anywhere, as long as you’re out of sight of the trail and roads."
