You should really pick up Tom's "Day Hikes From the River" (shameless plug, I know!). There are really an infinite amount of hikes. Pretty much every stop has a side canyon to hike up. Are you considering any Technical Canyoneering?

A few I have not seen mentioned as well:
1. Carbon to Lava 'loop' hike. Best done with a boat shuttle similar to Tapeats/Deer Creek.
2. If you camp at Cardenas, the hike up to Hilltop Ruin is a good one.
3. Vishnu - Go over the Schist Fin into the drainage and go up as far as you are comfortable.
4. Lots of hike variation in Nankoweap. Up Nanko Creek, over the BUtte Fault and down Kwagunt is a great hike. Long day though.... Can be done with a boat shuttle.
5. Fern Glen
6. National
7. Tuckup is nice. It is a LONG way to the Conglomerate Arch though!
8. Stone Creek and the upper waterfalls
9. Trinity
10. Everything Tom says about Bass (Shinumo) area. You could spend weeks here....
11. Tabernacle
12. Lots of cool hikes could be done up Escalante, 75-mile or Papago Canyons.

If you are considering some technical stuff, there is a whole other list for that...

Have a GReat Trip!

Thanks GC Hiker for that plug and the Great list! That should keep folks busy for a trip or ten! :>)

I often wonder if we have made it clear enough that the Martin Whitis GC River Guide is supposed to be used with the Day Hikes book....

So much to do and so little time to do it... Yours, tom

The guide that I have been using to plan is the guide to the colorado river in the grand canyon (Thank you Tom Martin) and ordered Day hikes from the river a few days ago and am awaiting arrival. I must be on the right step if these are the reference guides that I am getting and are the same ones that are being referred to me by the buzz community. What an awesome boating community that we have and a great resource Mountain Buzz is.
