There's no better way to enjoy the canyon than by walking right down into it and seeing all those rock layers and all that plant and animal life up close. You can day-hike partway into the canyon on a number of trails, or stay along any of the many rim trails. Hikers are urged not to try hiking to the bottom of the canyon and back in 1 day. The best time to hike into the canyon is mid-September to mid-May. During the summer months, hiking the rim trails is a better option, as hiking into the canyon can be uncomfortably hot.
