The Grand Canyon: Learn! Plan! Go!

February 12, 2022 @ 10:45 am - 11:45 am

Charley Schuerholz presents The Grand Canyon: Learn! Plan! Go!;

Have you thought about what it would be like to hike one of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders? Do you crave a challenging hike in an extreme environment? Have you thought about planning a Grand Canyon trip (or a trip to any national park), but find the year in advance reservation logistics confusing?

Hiking the Grand Canyon is much more than strapping on a pair of boots and hitting the trail. With knowledge, desire and proper planning, the Grand Canyon will be one of your most memorable adventures.

Come learn: Traveling to the Grand Canyon, finding the lodging you need, the logistics of coordinating hiking permits with housing (above and below-the-rim), hiking gear, hiker nutrition, physical training, North rim vs South rim, shuttle/duffel services, personal safety and more.

Come see: Photos of hikes below-the-rim and hear stories of our Grand Canyon hiking adventures.

Take away: Informative website links, contact information to make your reservations, lodging insights and the knowledge you need to successfully plan your trip.

Not ready to commit to a hike? Live vicariously during this seminar with many below-the-rim photos of the Grand Canyon and stories of adventure. Learn about activities for non-hikers in your group. Open forum – come discuss and share. Everyone is welcome.


Charley Schuerholz has been a lifelong hiker/walker. He craves the physical challenge of a strenuous hike and enjoys fun, social backpacking trips. Charley has logged 192 miles hiking below the Grand Canyon rim, including five Rim-to-Rim hikes. Although the dry desert heat is Charley’s favorite hiking environment, he is open to an adventure anywhere. He’s hiked/backpacked in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Utah and of course his home state of Ohio. He strives to continually gain insights for successful hiking from his fellow hikers and The Dayton Hiker’s Club. Charley is excited for the opportunity to give back by sharing his experiences and knowledge in hopes that you will find the confidence to hike the trails you dream about.
