An Indiana Woman Passed Away Earlier This Month After Trying To Hike Up And Down The Grand Canyon In The Same Day

National Park officials say a 36-year-old Indiana woman passed away while hiking the Bright Angel Trail earlier this month. Officials say the communications center received a report of an unresponsive hiker at around 9 p.m. back on May 14th. The hiker on the trail was found above the Three-Mile Resthouse. The victim was attempting to hike to the Colorado River and back in one day, when she started to have health problems. Park rangers strongly urge visitors, especially inner canyon hikers and backpackers, to be prepared for excessively hot days in the coming weeks. Rangers don’t advise hiking in the inner canyon between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and trying to do the up and down hike in the same day. An investigation into the incident is being conducted by the National Park Service in coordination with the Coconino County Medical Examiner.
