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.

Accommodations & Service Standards

While the accommodations on this trip reflect the natural surroundings of the national parks and provide unparalleled access to the best activities in the area, they are simpler than is typical of Backroads lodging. Many buildings date back to the turn of the century and have only been minimally renovated, in accordance with park regulations. Overall, the service standards can seem slow and casual when compared with the hospitality found on other Backroads trips. Please note that internet and cell phone service are extremely limited throughout the parks.

Hiking in Small Groups

On this trip we hike in Coconino National Forest and the Grand Canyon. The National Park Service limits the size of all groups in these parks depending on the trail. Accordingly, you'll hike in small groups with either a Backroads leader or local guide, depending on our group size and trail limitations. Please also be aware that your leaders won't be hiking with you on Bright Angel Trail due to National Park regulation. We appreciate your cooperation with the park's regulations.
