Although most park visitors quickly recognize the danger of falling into the canyon, they don’t always perceive the danger of walking into it. Every year, the canyon’s backcountry rangers respond to hundreds of emergency calls, most of them on the corridor trails (Bright Angel, North Kaibab, and South Kaibab). Day hikers are lured deep into the canyon by the ease of the descent, the sight of other hikers continuing downward, and (sometimes) the goal of reaching the river. As they drop into the canyon’s hotter climes in late morning, temperatures climb doubly fast.
