My 13 year old son and I are planning a 2 night backpacking trip to BIBE. Our current plan is to arrive in the morning on Friday, March 9, but we could be delayed until the week of March 12-16. If we are lucky and beat the Spring Breakers, our plan is to do a 2 night backpacking trip to the South Rim. However, if the Spring Breakers beat us, we need a plan B, and I need suggestions for that. My preference is total mileage of 10-15 miles roundtrip and will consider either the mountains or the desert. We will be packing food and water and have a moderate amount of backpacking experience. We have camped in the Basin before and have hiked the Window and Lost Mine trails. I want to keep increasing my son's love for backpacking, so routes with some good oohs and aahs would be great. I would appreciate any and all suggestions.
