The overlook is signed and can be seen from Hwy. 64. There are stalls for Navajo craftspeople, picnic tables and a small shelter. The gorge's cliffs are sheer, at least a thousand foot drop, and quite photogenic. The steel fence is more open than at...More

The location gives one the true feeling of the American West. It is remote and the beauty is rugged. Not a place ofr one who is afraid of heights, however.

Absolutely incredible view. It was a little bit of a walk but well worth it. It was late in the day and the lighting was perfect for photography because the sun was leaving nice shadows

The Little Colorado River Gorge was so pretty. It would have been nice to have stopped for the perfect pictures but we had a lot to see on our list. I was told it's a miniature version of the Grand Canyon. It's located on the...More

The little Colorado River Gorge is a miniature version of the Grand Canyon. It’s on the Navajo reservation. The river was dried up due to low water levels when we visited but it was still beautiful.

This was a pleasant surprise on our way to the Grand Canyon on hwy 64 headed west off 89. There was hardly anyone there. And I have never heard the sound of pure silence (no traffic, etc) like I have here. Great little find, beautiful!

No, it is not as WOW as the Grand Canyon. However, I feel like there are more things to discover in these smaller areas. I love the view, it truly is beautiful. I would highly recommend checking the scene here.

There are nice viewing spots along Highway 89 with views of this gorge. The viewing areas come quick at the highway speeds so pay attention to the signs. There are Native American booths set up at each.
