Bright Angel Trail Update for 2023 Season

By RaftArizona • June 8, 2022

We are now taking reservations for river trips that require hiking into or out of the canyon on Bright Angel Trail in 2023! The National Park Service (NPS) has construction projects planned along parts of the Bright Angel Trail and we delayed opening some of our trips until we knew how this construction would affect the trail. We are cleared to run and have opened the following trips: 

5 Day Motor Hiker’s Special trip April 15-19 

7 Day Motor Hiker’s Special trip April 19-25 

Other trip types with a hike in or out of the canyon are unlikely to open next year. If these new trips don’t work for you we encourage you to consider a trip with our sister company, Grand Canyon Whitewater. They have several trips available in 2023 or you can sign up to be notified when our 2024 season opens to give you the best chance of snagging the trip you want. 

As always, call our office at 800.477.7238 if you have any questions about your options. We’d love to help get you on the river!

No question too small!
