Located 30 miles off the pavement to the West of Grand Canyon Village lies South Bass Trailhead. The trail is one of the lesser used trails in the Grand Canyon. South Bass links up to the heavier traveled Tonto Trail and is also one of the starting points for the Royal Arch Loop. On this particular weekend we were headed down to the Colorado River for the evening and then returning out the same trail we descended. The trail drops down through canyon and provides some excellent views of the canyon.
