Grand Canyon National Park has published a very nice and informative brochure on Grand Canyon’s three maintained trails, also known as the Corridor Trails. This 2-page color brochure has tips on hiking safely throughout the year, as well as information on the elevations of various landmarks and campgrounds, trail distances, and average temperatures. Included is a map showing the various services available at each stop (toilets, emergency phones, etc.) and a cross section of the canyon and its rock layers with the trails superimposed on it.
