Read about this in Williams magazine and thought we would try it. We had a rental car, Chevy Trax. It was terrible. The road was dusty and nArrow. Eventually got to the top. Nowhere to park, no pullin. Great stones on the road and workmen parked their vehicles While working on the satellite dishes at the top! My husband has... More

This will take a good car to drive all the way up to the top of this mt. I hope u have a good car, too. It is a gorgeous view, and one can really see all around--all over---a good lookout. They use this as a fire lookout, i believe

A long drive, and you need a 4x4 to get there, but tts worth it. The view is incredible. WE were invited up into the watch tower, and from there you have a panoramic view of the whole area. If your really fit you can hike up from the ranger station in Williams. We tried but did not make it,... More

Loved the drive! We took the route up Bill Williams Mountain and then continued on Bill Williams Mountain Loop. The scenery was amazing! We would have liked to stay on top of the mountain a little longer, but a storm was rolling in. They seem to roll in mid afternoon, during monsoon season. The loop takes you through the forested...

At the very top of the mountain is a tower you can climb to see very far! When we were there, the Lady Bugs were EVERYWHERE!!! It's a long rough bumpy winding road to get to the top! There is a restroom at the top near the tower but it was locked when we got there!

Worth the drive up the mountain. Bring binoculars. On a clear day you can see a lookout in the Grand Canyon to the north. Or look south from the Grand Canyon outlook. I did it both ways.

If you are looking for some boot time before tackling Grand Canyon try this trail. It's a steady four mile ascent, with great views of the San Francisco peaks at the summit. We did it in April and there was still snow on the ground. The microwave tower farm at the top is pretty interesting.

You can see for miles from the top. Take a short walk out to Finger Rock for a beautiful view of the N. Rim Grand Canyon

We rode up with our family while we were camping in the Kaibab Forest. We took our side by side and the trip up took about an hour, so pack a cooler with drinks and snacks. We saw horseback riders and hikers enjoying the mountain on our way up. Unfortunately in the summer it is monsoon season, and we were... More

We drove the road to the lookout in a Honda Fit and made it but I would not go any higher than the towers. The turn off from Hwy 73 is easy to miss as it's just a dirt road into the forest. The dirt road is seven miles each way with many turns and is quite a climb. I... More
