There is no narration for this video. An audio described version has been provided.


“I recommend starting to hike pre-dawn, you'll want to make it up The Corkscrew before it gets too hot.” So says many a park ranger to backpackers at the bottom of the Grand Canyon enquiring about the hike out. Also known as Devil’s Corkscrew, this section of the Bright Angel Trail is notorious for its steep grade and, in the summer, its dangerous heat. Take a Minute Out In It to experience The Corkscrew in the late fall, when backpackers enjoy a respite from the heat--an ideal time to hike the Canyon.
