One of the best drives in North America either by car or motorcycle. The pavement is first class. The scenery is amazing. Get off the interstate and enjoy this slice of wonder.

I hiked the Fork Trail with my 8 year old and it was one of the best hikes we've ever taken! Lots of creek crossings to keep the hike interesting for all ages.

These were some of the best slot views during our week long trip, nicely shaded, running water and a bit of history makes this a well worth it half day!

Find the grasshopper point watering hole it’s worth it! Cliff jumping and cold water. Wear good shoes for the small hike to the water.

Gorgeous drive. Check for road construction, try not to go on weekends. Recommended in and out drive so you can switch drivers and both get a chance to look. Plan time to stop at scenic looks as well as quaint businesses along the way.

I have been going up here camping since I was a kid in the early 70s. Back then the canyon had several campgrounds, and there was room between the sites. We usually went down to Redrock crossing, because it was usually less busy. The slide...More
