Interesting place to see on your way

We were on our way to Zion canyon and drove by the district. It was ok, but I would not go out of my way just to see this again. It made the trip more authentic though...

Worth the drive along with Lee's Ferry, Paria Beach and the scenic drive in. Nice little stroll into the orchard and beyond.

Nice walk along the Paria River. Can walk into the ranch and see the abandoned buildings, then walk along the river. The day we were there, the river was swollen from rains upstream, so hard to walk much farther though looks like great hiking to be had if it had been drier.

They are currently doing some road work so you can't really get to the Lonely Dell ranch. The Lees ferry area is mainly interesting for the launch ramp to float down the Colorado river. The Navajo bridge is wonderful and there are some small beaches to put your feet in the ice cold water. Only if you have extra time.... More

The ranch and ferry are interesting for themselves, and is the little graveyard, and the entire history of Lonely Dell, the ferry, and the families who operated it.

Historic ranch, orchard & trailhead into Paria Canyon. Gorgeous scenery, quiet and off the beaten path. (In the winter at least). Right in Lee's Ferry, this is where most people start the 3-6 day 45 mile backpacking journey into the slot canyon along the Paria River. Great for day hiking as well. Highly recommend.

We were alone on our visit to the ranch. You can tell that the NPS is working on restoring these buildings. Make sure that you grab the flyer as you walk in as the flyer tells all about the buildings. As long as you are walking and if you are curious make sure that you walk down to the cemetery... More

This was a little difficult to find. I enjoy historic buildings and places. You couldn't go in the buildings. It was a easy walk from the parking lot. It's probably not worth visiting by itself, but if you are going out to Lee's Ferry or the Navajo Bridge. This is a great side trip.

This location is about 40 miles from Page on Highway 89a. There are numerous sights along the way and after, so be sure to include this in your agenda. There are several fruit orchards on the property. Visitors are allowed to take up to 5 gallons of fruit for free, you just have to pick it. Very cool old buildings... More

We debated on spending the $20 for the park permit to enter this area. Fortunately a friendly Ranger was at the self-pay station and told us it would be well worth it. She was right. The road takes you back deep into the canyon where you can get out and walk along the beaches of the Colorado River. The current... More
