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.

This forest is in and around the Grand Canyon and we drove through it to reach the South Rim. Acres and acresof forest very impressive. If you are flying over it look out for the occasional herd of wild buffalo.

On our way out of the Grand Canyon (south toward Williams again) we spotted Smoky the Bear at the Tusayan Ranger Station. My travelling companion noted she`s always wanted to meet that bear, so we pulled a U-turn and back we went. Worth the stop to selfie with the celebrity bruin. A couple of other folks stopped while we were... More

We stopped at the ranger station and the rangers were knowledgeable and pleasant, explaining about the burned areas of the forest we had been seeing ... forest fires of several years ago looking but looking quite recent. Make sure to get your National Parks and Monument passport stamp while you're there!
