This adventure is for the experienced backpacker who wants to explore the wilder side of Grand Canyon. The Kanab Creek Wilderness is 75,000 acres of deep sandstone and limestone gorges, slickrock expanses, freshwater springs, Native American relics and perfect solitude. Kanab Creek itself is the largest tributary system on the north side of Grand Canyon. This trip starts at Sowats Point, a remote trailhead on the North Rim, and descends into the Kanab Creek Wilderness. Your days will be spent descending Sowats, Jumpup & Kanab Canyons to explore the depths and secrets, before retracing our path back to the rim. There are many opportunities for exploration in this unparalleled wilderness. This is a challenging hike involving off-trail routes, scrambling and frequent stream crossings. However, the rewards are many for those who decide to visit this incredible area.
