A great trail off Hwy 128 just off the Colorado River. Pretty little like along a creek (for a bit) and back into an alcove with a nice arch. Fun to learn the history of Bill Grandstaff and his relation to the area.

We went on a day when it was not too hot so the hike was most enjoyable. I would not recommend it to anyone with bad knees since you will be walking on some rocks. The hike is moderate and you don't have to be...More

This is a really good canyon hike with a great ultimate destination. It took us a couple of hours return and the way marking/trail was largely easy to follow. Not recommended after heavy rain.

Negro Bill trail is a good one - easy enough we did it with a couple of babies in carriers and grandparents. We had to cross a stream a few times, which we were prepared for. There isn't a lot of vertical on the hike,...More

This trail is now marked as the Grandstaff Trail (formerly the Negro Bill Canyon Trail). This great 4 plus mile out and back hike is very enjoyable as you follow a stream most of the way to the top. There are multiple stream crossing that...More

Good trail along a local creek. Some 4,5 miles r/t -easy with little elevation. You do get your feet wet when crossing the creek a few places but a nice walk. The bridge at the end is great.

Camped at Negro Bill last June. It's still there across from the trailhead. There are a bunch of other campsites along the river with varying amenities.
