The Kaibab National Forest encompasses most of the Kaibab Plateau, with a boundary bordering Grand Canyon National Park. A visitor center is located at Jacob Lake, 30 miles south and east of Fredonia at the junction of highways US 89A and AZ 67.

Very nice mountain hike, excellent undeveloped sites for camping near top

Not a terribly hard hike. Good view from multiple locations on the hike.

it was perfect for the boys. nice hike.

My partner and I stopped to do this hike in the early morning before heading into the Grand Canyon. It was a lovely, quiet hike that was a great antidote to the McDonald's-tourist-zoo-endless-sea-of-gift-shops-entrance to the area. The hike wasn't too difficult but we had yet to fully adjust to the altitude (we're from Virginia and we operate at around 600 ft above sea level on a daily basis, whereas once you are in this part of AZ, you're at around 8,000 ft above sea level) so we were a bit huffy and puffy as we went up. Adding to this was the fact that there is a major heatwave in effect currently (they've been grounding flights in Phoenix because it hit 120 Fahrenheit). Nonetheless, the trail offers a fair amount of shade as you ascend, so we were able to pause and take in the marvelous views the whole time. Once you're at the top of the butte, you get 360 degree views of the area, which allows you to see the Grand Canyon in the distance.

This was a great trail for me and my 3 year old to hike. Very easy to traverse and beautiful scenery during the entire hike.

Great, short hike for kids. Lots to explore!

Absolutely incredible hike! I highly recommend this hike for anyone who wants a tough day of hiking, an amazing view, and a great trail. The watch tower at the top is an added bonus!
