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.

Well established forest full of wild life. We saw deer and coyotes from the car as we drive through. The whole area is very well maintained so has an open feeling that encourages wildlife.

We stayed for a week just outside the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Kaibab National Forest. It's much quieter away from those visiting the National Park. There are large meadows in the National Forest with many, many deer and buffalo. Drive slowly. Do not get out of your car if the buffalo are close by, especially during August... More

This forest was truly beautiful and quiet. While driving through we saw a little fawn trying to cross the road and a herd of wild turkeys. In all it was a peaceful Sunday drive!

These cabins are rustic and cozy BUT have easy access to the North Rim Grand Canyon. Be VERY CAREFUL GETTING IN AND OUT OF CABINS as stairs are not good. If you are looking for a get away from everything place you just found it! Food good at the Lodge and wine and beer available (will review separately ).

What a treasure to be able to drive through this wild area and take it all in. The roads are in good shape. We saw plenty of deer and a coyote.
