Join Outdoor Recreation, your friends, and neighbors at La Aldea as we visit the always-spectacular Grand Canyon National Park. We will camp in Mather Campground and spend the weekend hiking both on the rim and down into the canyon while visiting scenic overlooks. 

Trails to be explored will include the South Kaibab Trail, a rugged and popular area that provides a fantastic view of the lower canyon. Participants will make their way down the windy trail, stopping for lunch at an overlook that makes for the perfect spot to take some beautiful photos or capture an awesome selfie.

In venturing around the rim of the canyon, participants will be able to explore the various vantage points and stop by the Visitor's center to learn about the unique and incredible history of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. 

After a day of exploring and hiking, we'll tuck into a warm dinner and roast marshmallows over a fire, as the night sky provides a beautiful backcountry view of countless stars.
