  • We didn't know anything about the Kaibab National Forest until we drove to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It's a lovely destination on its own. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful meadows along ...  read more »
  • This is a huge Forest, so it's hard to recommend a specific spot, but I liked this forest because it has campgrounds minutes away from the Grand Canyon South Rim. We saw elk meandering through the camp and all the sites I saw were well maintained. I can't vouch for the trails, but given the size of this forest, it seems to get quite a bit of support from NPS.
  • This is a very beautiful place where you can drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Going here you will have a nice long drive to high altitude of this forest.
  • You'll feel like John Wayne riding through this beautiful park
  • What a lovely drive through the forest and meadows. The Kaibab Forest is on both the North and South side of the Grand Canyon. On the North from Jacob Lake to the North Rim the drive includes a few campgrounds and marvelous open meadows. Depending on your luck and the time of year you may see Buffalo, deer and elk. I still remember vividly a few years back when we came past a herd of several hundred elk. It was stunning. When walking in the forest be sure to be on the lookout for the Kaibab White Tailed Squirrel. I saw two this year and is was wonderful to see an animal that I never knew existed till I did some research. It's main habitat is on the North Rim forest with the higher altitude. Now off to the south section of the Kaibab Forest that stretches from Flagstaff almost to Globe. The forest goes on and on. I really liked taking the less traveled road through Payson. There are lots and lots of campgrounds and facilities as you come down the highway. It is as if there are cities in the forest. And there are! The trees wain a bit at the south end of the forest. All in all the forest is way to big to wrap it all up in a review. There is something for everyone, especially for the outdoor types. Enjoy it from all angles.
  • What it Is, nice & cool in the shade.
