Arizona’s share of the Colorado Plateau, highlighted by one of America’s premier national parks (Grand Canyon National Park), is a wonderland of colorful canyons, plateaus, and mesas. The Grand Canyon is not to be missed, for its depths promise hidden corridors, waterfalls, and impressive vistas to all who venture within. A smaller version of Kendrick Mountain to the northeast, Bill Williams Mountain is a wonderful summit to hike, partly for the view from the top, and partly because of the lush forest encountered along the way. Closing in on this trail are towering aspen and fir, along with a riotous growth of underbrush.

Second time I've done this trail. This time entirely in the rain. Quite a work out, took me 7 hours first time around, 5 hours the second. Trail is easy to follow. Finally reaching the top is kind of a bummer with all the loud generators and radio towers and such, but it's an accomplishment nonetheless. I'm using this trail as one of several conditioning trails for Humphreys. 9500 feet doesn't sound like alot, but depending on where you're coming from it can make a big difference. Also expect temps 10-20 degrees cooler at the top.
