Time for a bit of Arizona Trail?

Last year, I hiked a bit of the Arizona Trail from the Walnut Meadows loop off Walnut Canyon Road to Fisher Point. Now that the snow has melted, I’m thinking about rehashing the hike for some training. Photographer Josh Biggs and I are slated to go to the South Rim and hike down South Kaibab, across the Tonto and up Bright Angel on May 1.
The trail to Fisher Point, where I began, can take you to Marshall Lake if you’re willing to hike that far. I decided to stroll out to Fisher Point (6 miles one way), maybe take a mile or two off the way to Marshall Lake, turn around, and head back — something like 14 miles total.
