Salt Trail

 WARNING:

There is insufficient beta for this canyon. Help us improve the Betabase... if you have details to contribute, please submit them to info@canyoncollective.com and you will be credited.


As with all beta, use the information on this page with caution. Obstacles may change or may be dependent on conditions, as well as group skills and comfort levels. Rap counts may increase if downclimbs get rigged as rappels, anchors may get altered or re-rigged, and conditions will vary. Always be prepared for the unexpected (mental, or physical challenges, or gear needs that you did not anticipate), consider your options, and look for the safest alternative for your group to descend the canyon.

    Our intent was to day hike 3 miles down the Salt Trail to the LCR and then hike 5 miles to the confluence. Ill-conceived planning by trip leader who did not show but we shoved off anyway. I've done many different GC trails (Tanner, Hermit, Deer Creek, Thunder River, etc..) and this is far more "rugged" with time consuming route finding as there is seldom a "trail" just walking from cairn to cairn over rocky surface. We gave up on reaching the confluence and upon reaching the LR, turned around and hiked out. Trip report can be found here: http://www.granvillebike.com/marks-cycling-blog/another-epic-day-in-the-grand-canyon. It would take a good 10-11 hours to do the entire 16 miles and we started too late for that.
