General Information

Description - This route crosses over the gorgeous Kaibab Plateau and travels through the Kaibab National Forest and Grand Canyon National Park. There are plenty of places to hike and camp along the route. Groves of golden aspen, flowery meadows, ponds, outcrops of limestone, and steep slopes (on all sides) break up the dominance of the regal coniferous forest. Thousands of visitors travel to the Kaibab Plateau each fall to enjoy the vibrant colors of autumn leaves. Also, the Colorado and Kanab rivers flow right around the byway, so there is plenty of opportunity for water sports.

The North Kaibab Ranger District is situated on the spectacular Kaibab Plateau, from which the forest takes it's name. The Plateau is one of the five large plateaus that comprise the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Bordered on the east by Saddle Mountain Wilderness and to the west by the Kanab Creek Wilderness, the Plateau provides breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon, Marble Gorge, House Rock Valley and the Vermilion Cliffs
