"The Grand Canyon is huge and steep. The volcano is long and arduous. Can I do this?"

YES! With Conquer The Canyon, there is something for everyone.

The Walking Connection has developed Conquer The Canyon and Volcano to accommodate walkers and hikers with varied interests and abilities. We also have created a 16-week physical training and preparedness program.


"How long are the hikes and how will I know which one is right for me?"

The choice is yours. We'll help you every step of the way. You can choose from a variety of trails. Each offers varying degrees of difficulty and distance. You may select the relatively flat and improved trails on the Rim that offer options of a 1.5 mile to a 12 mile walk/hike (2.4 - 19.3 Kilometers). You can select one of longest day hikes into the Canyon on a maintained trail which can be up to 12 miles (19.3 Kilometers) and 3000' (914 meters) descent into the canyon. You can select a very steep and challenging hike on a wilderness trail that is up to 7 miles long, but more technical in nature. You even have the option of combining several trails. Best of all, The Walking Connection will provide you information and ongoing support so that you select and properly train for the perfect hike for you.


"I'm not a hiker, can I do this?"

ABSOLUTELY! As you have to do is engage yourself into the training and preparedness portion of the program. You can do this by simply following the online training schedule and preparedness manuals provided, read your newsletters, participate in the blogs, Facebook and Twitter postings during your training. When you come to Grand Canyon, bring an open mind and spirit of adventure, and follow the lead of your EXPERT Walking Connection Grand Canyon guide. We will help you every step of the way.


"I'm an experienced hiker, will I be challenged?"

Definitely! First of all, there are NO EASY trails into or out of the Grand Canyon. The Walking Connection has led literally thousands of hikers at Grand Canyon so we know how to combine experienced like-minded hikers into small groups. We will get you on a trail and hike that will meet your adventurous spirit and challenge your technical abilities. We want you to test your endurance and your ability to deal with a variety of new and different environmental conditions. Following your training schedule and preparedness manual will be critical to your success.


"Do I need special equipment and what should I bring?"

You do not need any special equipment. Depending upon where you live, the equipment you use to train will be more than enough for your Grand Canyon hike. In fact, it may be too much. In addition to your adventuresome spirit, you'll need sturdy hiking boots, a good day pack, light hiking shorts and COTTON T-Shirts! Forget the moisture wicking hi-tech thin material athletic shirts. They are NOT appropriate for this desert hike. We'll explain in detail EXACTLY what you will and won't need once you have joined Conquer The Canyon.
