We drove here in a Jeep Wrangler. Roads are a bit rough and narrow but good. The view at Sycamore Point is beautiful. A mini Grand Canyon with no crowds - we were the only ones there. The only downside was it started to rain...More

It is about a 2 hour round trip from Williams to Sycamore Point. The roads and very manageable, at least when we went. The one "stream crossing" was dry. Perhaps it would be a different story if you go after heavy rains. The views from...More

Very nice area for hiking or sightseeing. Can be seen from in the Canyon or up above. Very scenic. Lighting for photos from the overlook best in the afternoon. Horseshoe and Dogtown Lakes in the same area on the way out. JD Dam also nice.
