Recommended Backup Itineraries
The Grand Canyon's backcountry permit system allows us to submit back-up itineraries for your trip. We strongly recommend having both alternate dates and itineraries to maximize your odds of being able to have a great hike in the Canyon. Below are our recommended back-up itineraries for the different trips.
Please Note: If your back-up itinerary is secured, it will be your choice to accept it or not at that time. You're still entitled to a full transfer or refund of your deposit. Without alternates however, your permit application will be flatly denied if your first choice is unavailable. Should you not choose to join the alternate itinerary, it will be offered to other guests at no cost to you.
