It was beautiful. For nature lovers it's a must-see. We drove through as we were traveling from the Grand Canyon toward Bryce Canyon. We don't get to see trees like that in Oklahoma or Missouri!

It is a 45 mile drive to the North Rim and you have to drive through the Plateu and National Forest to get there. It is a very nice drive but there isn't much to do along the way.

Wonderful drive along the plateau, with forest and wide open meadow. Oh yes, even the odd herd of bison

In 20 miles I believe we haven't seen even one pothole - this street is a real joy to drive (even in our 41ft RV pulling a Jeep). We have seen cows, deer (whole herds), wild turkey and eagles. We ended up staying in the National Forest at DeMotte Campground - a real "back to nature" experience, as this campground... More

From Jacob Lake you drive through the forest to reach the north rim of the grand canyon. It is a beautiful drive from start to finish. We saw cows, deer, turkey, buffalo and many wild flowers. The meadows are so unexpected after driving through the wooded area, still regenerating from a devastating wildfire of several years ago. There is a... More

This would be a five if the forest had not suffered a bad fire. It is so sad to be driving past so many spindly, blackened stumps of trees. The entrance to Kaibab Forest is near Jacob Lake Inn, where the last gas station before the Grand Canyon North Rim is also located. At the same spot there is a... More

Except for the first 1,000 acres (2006 fire) this forest is beautiful with rolling meadows for miles! In 2 days I saw a herd of buffalo, deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, and eagles.

Our trip was at the end of September. We took several routes along scenic routes on our way to the North Rim of he Grand Canyon. Early frost burned most of the foliage killing autumn color prior to our visit. Great drives, beautiful scenery, clear air, next time we'll go earlier in the season.
