National Park Service – Grand Canyon National Park, Bright Angel Trailhead

Bright Angel, Grand Canyon National Park’s highest-volume trailhead, serves thousands of day hikers, overnight hikers, mule riders, shuttle bus riders, and rim walkers on a typical summer day. To better serve a higher visitor volume, this project implemented a variety of facility improvements including a new plaza, visitor facilities, and sustainably designed comfort stations that minimize impacts to the fragile landscape. 360 Engineering designed mechanical and plumbing systems that use electric radiant heat to keep pipes from freezing for two new restroom buildings, a janitor’s room, and an exterior drinking fountain.
