Comments about 261 Grand Canyon: Bright Angel Canyon/North and South Rims Trail Map:
I will use this map for an upcoming Rim to Rim hike in the Grand Canyon. It looks like it is EXACTLY what I will need. It has water points and camp grounds marked and mile marker distances annotated on the trail routes.
