Late July is a great time to visit the South Rim. I have done both as an overnight and as day hike in late summer. Bring a rain jacket.

The Chisos won't be too hot. Down in the desert you'll need to hit the trail very early in the morning and get out of the sun by noon, unless there's rain to cool things off.
