The Grand Canyon has hundreds of miles of hiking trails, most departing from the South Rim Village or the North Rim Village. Do a day hike down as far as you want, then back. Go backpacking on a multiday trip and stay at Phantom Ranch or a backcountry campground deep in the canyon. You can even hike up from your rafting trip on the Colorado River.
