  • It’s quite a trek between Zion Canyon and Grand Canyon North Rim National Parks, and you might want to break your journey somewhere. I’d recommend a stop at Pipe Spring National Monument. It’s a tiny ...  more »
  • We had a spare day and wondered across Pipe Spring. It was not as described by a local. Be sure to watch a short video of it’s history. It was eye opening for me and my wife. I was surprised that the ...  more »
  • 3pm there is a guided tour of the fort. From 4pm, the fort is an open house. Worth looking in. We also did the loop trail. OK. Quite steep, narrow and a little scary. Took a little. While to walk the ...  more »

  • Excellent stop and an unsuspecting National Park. Out of all of our stops this was one of the most Wild West feeling Stops we actually saw. The Park Ranger telling the stories at the old house on top of the springs was very good and very passionate about her job. If you are driving down this road, it is a must see. You can spend as little as an hour here and leave like it was time well spent. JUNIOR RANGER program here too, for kids
  • Great info free shows. Nice gift shop. Please donate any amount to help keep places like this open. Remember anything can make a diffrence. We were glad to have the opportunity to learn some good local info. Thank you!
  • 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. She explained the political and religious ramifications for the Native Americans and the Mormons. The tour is given at the top of the hour and if you have extra time, there is a great 20 minute film to watch as well as the artifacts in the visitors center. Take the time to walk the Ridge Trail behind the museum. The views are spectacular.
  • You'll have tours ever half hour that will explain everything you'd like to know about the land and its inhabitants. Nice stop to make if you're driving through the area and want another stamp.
  • The people who were there were knowledgeable​ about the history and very proud of the history of the place. They were helpful and lots of during the tour.
