Temperatures reached as high as degrees in the area, they said. According to the hiking website AllTrailsthe Tonto Trail is rated "difficult" and is recommended for only the most experienced Grand Canyon hikers. The trail, which can take four to five days to traverse, stretches just over 27 miles. Grand Canyon Park officials warned that rescue efforts can be slowed during the summer months due to limited staff. In March, the body of a year-old man from Kentucky was found days after he went missing at the park. Meyn's body was located feet below the canyon's rim on Feb.
