The drive from Page to the North Rim (Grand Canyon) via the southern edge of the Vermillion Cliffs is simply spectacular. It is worth stopping at the bridge over the Colorado River then the road travels beneath the cliffs for many miles on its way to the Kaibab Plateau. One worthwhile stop is at a spot which protects ancient Indian... More

We saw this mostly through the windshield of our car, and it's beautiful. We stopped a couple of times to take photos and enjoy the red cliffs in the late afternoon. What's so cool is that you have the red cliffs, blue sky, and then the yellow-and-green prairie below. The colors are amazing. Try to drive early or late so... More

The cliffs are a very large area, in a sort of valley. Well worth taking this route, but not an area to stop in really. There is one wilderness road you could go further into the area however.

These cliffs are breathtaking, you can spend hours and not see all the different colours and rock formations. So worth seeing!

I did a driving view with a couple of stops; if you like cliffs and mesas, this drive is pretty good. You might see a condor near Marble Canyon, I did not.

This entire area is absolutely amazing. Lots of places to hike to, rocks to climb, but take along lots of water during the summer.

Stunning view. We drove by on Route 89A at sunset time going from Page to Zion Canyon and this has been one of the strongest impressions of our trip.

The cliffs are many shades of color. Just beautiful and the lighting makes them change before your eyes! Very pretty and they make for some great pics. Many people think of this as the painted desert.
