Cool stop on the way from Cameron to the Grand Canyon. This property is owned by the Navajo people, so there is a small donation to enter. Beautiful overlook of the Little Colorado River, very steep in some places.

We enjoyed the view. The river is very far down and you can see how nature carved its way through the landscape. There was a requested donation to the Indian Tribe owners of the property for maintenance to enter the property, which was fine. There...More

Definitely worth the hike to the overlook as the view is amazing. The sheer cliffs are a bit intimidating, but stay in the safe zone.

Technically this is part of the grand canyon but you wouldn't know it from looking at it. This is in Navajo country and the entrance fee is a donation. Not worth going out of your way, but worth the stop if going by on RT64....More

I'd check it out even AFTER seeing the Grand Canyon. It's impressive, and some angles are pretty breath-taking. The jewelry stands are a nice bonus.
