Drove through a lot of this Forest on my way from St. George on my way to Grand Canyon. Interesting and quite picturesque. They were doing some controlled burns along the way which made the drive kind of eerie. Lots of photo ops and lookouts...More

The forest is especially impressive in the fall when the aspens have changed color. The road to the North Rim features a herd of bison among other things

The Forest was spectacular and refreshing to those of us from the city. Incredible number of trees. The only thing I regret is I never saw a Kaibab Squirrel.

To many folks, AZ67 is just the road to the North Rim. It's much more if you SLOW DOWN and watch and listen! If you're not camping, stop at the visitor center by the Jacob Lake Inn and grab a pamphlet, and stop at the...More

The north side of this forest includes the forest surrounding the North Rim of the Grand Canyon at a high elevation. That elevation keeps it cool in the summer and forces it to close in the winter.

If you want great camping try Dispersed camping on forest roads. Free and no neighbors or rude campsite host ! This is what our tax dollars pay for.
