The National Park Service does an excellent job giving tours here. They explain not just the history of Pipe Springs but delve into the co-existence of the three groups that relied on the springs. The Paiute Indians, the Mormon settlers and the US Government. Ranger Kait, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of life in this remote location.... More

This is something you don't see every day, a tithing ranch. It was owned by the Mormans to receive animals in lieu of cash when the devout gave a tenth of what they owned. I did not get to see what appeared to be a house in the barn, which I wanted to, but everything else was easy to see.... More

Visited this National Monument while in Vegas. It is managed by the National Park Service and is very enlightening. I believe they stated Brigham Young helped build this desert sanctuary for the early pioneers in this area. I didn't realize that this part of Arizona gets very cold during the winter months. There is a small admission fee if you... More

We stopped by this place on the way back to Vegas. It has a lot of historical information regarding the early native Culture.

Pipe Spring is surrounded by large National Parks and often overlooked, but it's a small gem. Interesting history of the area. Be sure to hike the Ridge Trail. Though it's short, the ascent makes it a little bit challenging. But the view from the top is worth every step.

We stopped here on a road trip last doing. Cool another park we can add to the list. For a small monument this is an interesting stop. Some of the staff are native American so be sure to ask them done questions about their history in the area. The walk through the fort was really cool. It shows how important... More

Small entrance fee about 4 or 5 dollars. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. It is a guided tour which is biased in favor towards the Mormon beliefs. It is not truly factual and you'll see that if you do any of your own research. It is a good and interesting visit though and is like a... More

The Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians Visitor Center and Museum is shared by the Paiutes and the National Park Service. We got there just in time for the last tour of Winsor Castle and we are happy we did. Our guide, Robert, was interesting and very knowledgeable. In 1868 the Mormons built a stone cabin as a stronghold against Navajo... More

Good stopping place when leaving the North Rim, more than 3,000 feet down in elevation. Very interesting to learn of early Indian dwelling there for winter, when summering on the North Rim. Early pioneer tenacity amazing. Beautiful country. Friendly and knowledgable staff
