South Rim Loop, Laguna Meadow Trail to Southwest Rim Professional Review and Guide
"The South Rim Loop provides hikers with an opportunity to traverse some of the most outstanding scenery in the state. The loop hike makes a perfect overnight backpacking trip, but can also be accomplished in one long, arduous day hike. While training for marathons I’ve run the loop, including a knee-pounding detour up Emory Peak and down, at a poor snail’s pace of just under 6 hours. However, rather than running the trail, I recommend hikers take the time to enjoy the high-elevation environment and stunning views from on top of the world."
