It's a good idea to stop at the Williams Ranger District Office for a free copy of the Motor Vehicle Use Map to find the trailhead for the Sycamore Rim Trail. We drove unpaved roads to a remote location, so I recommend taking necessary stuff like water if you're planning to hike. The complete Rim Trail is 11 miles. We were there on a warm June day and decided to hike out to the falls, which are dry at this time of year. Took us a couple of hours as we spent time viewing the canyon along the way. Easy hike, stunning views. Nobody else out there :)

This is a beautiful area that you should definitely go see! They have a double waterfall that is not a very long hike to get to. Awesome views and secluded!

Just took the drive from Williams to Sycamore Point to see the vista, We used the directions from Google...which were not very accurate. Also the "What to do in Williams" free visitor magazine describes how to get there via County Road 141 and FS Road 56 ...not the way to go as it leads a dead end (do not take FS Road 54). Best way to get there is via County Road 73 to FS Road 110. It's mostly a good wide graded gravel road to White Horse Lake Campground (most cars and RV's can make it easily to the lake). Campground was closed (seasonal closure) . Beyond the lake turnoff (FS Road 12) the road (FS 110) continues but narrows and requires higher clearance vehicles due to some rocky spots and steam crossings. It was mostly dry on the road this trip but during wet weather the roadbed looks like it gets sloppy..with lots of muddy spots. It's 5 miles from the lake turnoff to the view point. Great view of the canyon from there..looks like a "mini-grand canyon" with ridges rising several thousand feet above the bottom. Allow at least 2 hours for the road trip...I recommend getting a free USFS Motor Vehicle Use map from the Ranger District Office in Williams and for only $10 buy a Kaibab National Forest Map which shows much more detail. Roads are marked with signs but getting lost could be easy without a Forest Service map since there are miles of forested roads out there!

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.
