On day 1 we enter on the Hermit Trail. We contour above Hermit Creek on the Dripping Springs Trail to the junction of the Boucher Trail where we have lunch. After lunch we day hike up to Dripping Springs (one mile round trip) and fill our canteens from this unique spring that drips down from an overhang of Coconino Sandstone. Dry camping the night near spectacular Yuma Point, we continue down the Boucher Trail to Boucher Creek Campsite for the second night.

A dayhike to the river at Boucher Rapid is only an extra mile. We will head east on the Tonto Trail on the third day, passing through Travertine Canyon and camping at Hermit Creek. On the last day we return to the rim via the Hermit Trail. Lunch is usually at Santa Maria Spring. Mileage 5 / 5 / 6 / 7.7
