A single fact sets Phantom Ranch apart from anywhere else on Earth. It lies deep in the Grand Canyon, lost in a vast expanse of cliffs and gorges. To understand Phantom Ranch, you have to come to terms with the immense scale of its setting. Phantom Ranch covers only fourteen acres within a national park extending for almost 2,000 square miles. A dot on the map would exaggerate its size. But a trip to the ranch puts the canyon into perspective. It takes days by river, hours in the saddle, or long miles on foot.
Pools of shade collect beneath the cottonwood and sycamore trees, and the hypnotic sound of flowing water carries on the still air. Packs fall to the ground with a thud; riders stiffly dismount. You have reached the only place below the rim where you can take a shower, find ice, or sleep in a bed with clean sheets. A canyon oasis. For some it's the perfect hideaway, and for others a gateway to even more remote corners of the canyon.
