I love going hiking with my kids. We regularly grab our light backpack, a bottle of water, snack bar and head out to a local hiking trail. But hiking Grand Canyon with kids is definitely not something we’ve done. Michelle from A Local Wander took her kids on a hike to remember a few weeks ago.

As with any hiking adventure, safety should always be at the front of your mind. If you do plan to hike on unfamiliar trails, be sure to follow all safety precautions.

    I would be so scared to hike the Grand Canyon with my toddler but after reading this I like the system she had worked out! Hopefully one day!

    I have been to the Gran Canyon, but have yet to hike there! My kiddo is a little older than yours and can't wait to take him on a hike there!
