This area is amazing. Beautiful forests, beautiful drive in through desert and red rock country. Lots of areas to choose from for sightseeing, hiking, etc. the Grand Canyon is amazing, of course, and the old lodge just beautiful. The sad part was the smoke. some of it was from prescribed burns, which is tolerable, but some of it was from... More

North rim of the Grand Canyon, Kanab Creek wilderness, very large wildlife population (Kaibab squirrels are cool). Lots of roads and trails. What more do you need?

On our drive from Jacob Lake to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we saw Buffalo running about in the distance. There were several places to pull off the side of the road and watch nature in all its glory. When traveling at night be alert. It is very dark and there is nothing around you for miles. Great...

The first part of the Kaibab National Forest is the area around Tusayan south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Although it is called a Forest it is more open plains in some areas and quite different scenery to what you see further east and to the north. The Kaibab National Forest is also the area around the... More

This area is really wide, open space - the kind of place you see in a Western movie! Wildlife abounds - deer and even buffalo!

We didn't know anything about the Kaibab National Forest until we drove to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It's a lovely destination on its own. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful meadows along the road. During our last drive we saw over a hundred deer and ten bison. Very cool!

We drove around through the North Rim of the Grand Canyon through this Forest. It is amazing and we wish we had looked it all up on Trip Advisor first! We felt like pioneers as there were so few people around. The history of the area is worth looking into and I wish I had done that. Google: Kaibab before... More

We made a day drive thru the forest, it was beautiful, although they were conducting a control burn in part of the area which made for a windows up condition.
