Ribbon Falls Trail – Grand Canyon National Park AZ

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) conducted extensive development work in Grand Canyon National Park from 1933 to 1942. Among its trail development work, the CCC constructed the Ribbon Falls Trail.

The National Park Service’s CCC Walking Tour says: “More challenging projects [undertaken by the CCC] included a number of inner canyon trails. The Ribbon Falls Trail, a half-mile (0.8 km) spur off the North Kaibab Trail, still leads hikers to a beautiful waterfall.”

The trail is approximately 2.7 miles south of the Grand Canyon Lodge on the North Rim, as the crow flies.
