Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Weather

Arizona’s climate can be as varied and surprising as its terrain, with frost in the morning, baking heat in the afternoon and chilly temperatures in the evening. Snow is not uncommon in the early spring or late fall, and rain is always possible. Also, the changes in elevation as we travel are substantial, so you may experience a wide range of weather conditions in a single day. Please be prepared for a variety of climates, and be sure to bring warm layers, sun protection and rain gear. Winter storms or high water levels may result mid-trip itinerary changes, but rest assured your Trip Leaders are always prepared to make necessary adjustments to ensure a great trip.

Accommodations, Meals & Service Standards

The hotels we use on the first two nights of this trip have a rich history and are chosen for their ideal locations, giving us access to trip highlights such as the historic train trip to the South Rim and National Park hiking trails. These accommodations are simpler than the typical Backroads lodging, and service standards can seem slow and causal when compared to the hospitality found on other Backroads trips. Meals can be simple and menu options tend to lack variety.

Hiking in Small Groups

On this trip we operate in Coconino National Forest and Grand Canyon National Park. The National Forest and Park Service limits the size of all groups on these public lands. Accordingly, when in Coconino NF you'll hike in small groups with either a Backroads leader or local guide, depending on our group size. When in Grand Canyon National Park your leaders are only permitted to guide on hiking trails above the rim. Your leaders will provide pre-hike briefings, maps and directions for when you have the opportunity to hike on your own beneath the rim. Our bike ride in Grand Canyon National Park will be facilitated by a local guiding team due to park regulations. We appreciate your cooperation with these requirements.
