We went to the Grand Canyon for the third time. In this occasion in winter. But the whole canyon was covered by a winter fog, so we never saw the canyon. This was a good option to at least have a close view of a canyon. It's not as spectacular but it's great anyway.

This was a great stop coming out of the Grand Canyon. After we finished the south rim and headed east on 64, we discovered this stop. Well worth it! It was about a 15 min hike from the parking lot. Beautiful deep gorge and not crowded.

The Little Colorado Gorge is breathtaking. I recommend, good shoes, a bottle of water and time to sit and listen to nature. When last there, we had the pleasure of watching ravens swoop and soar above and in the canyon. Hearing the wing beat of a raven is truly a blessing.

If you are traveling Highway 64 to the Grand Canyon you will find this stop on your right some nine miles past Cameron. It provides a great way to view the Little Colorado River. It is a place for the locals to sell stuff . There are a number of places along the road where you can get similar views.

The first overlook stop on 64 headed to the east entrance of the Grand Canyon is a highlight of our trip. We stopped for lunch here and was not disappointed. Excellent spot for photos! Shaded picnic tables with ridiculous views! Several restrooms, navajo crafts, and some info about native americans are also here. There is a voluntary donation to the... More

Navajo run stop on the road to the Eastern entrance of the Grand Canyon. Very friendly people. Lovely views. Nice small jewelry and other native made gifts. We brought a pottery bear. We saw a similar one in Sedona for three times the price we paid here. Worth a visit if you are going past.

This place is worth a stop. I am a boy from southern Louisiana. For the entirety of my life I have resided below or slightly above sea level. The deepest canyon I see on a regular basis is the 17th Street Canal and it's not very impressive. On my way to visit The Grand Canyon, I saw many things I... More
