Established in 1935, this area contains a unique canyon-land environment. The canyon cuts through the Mogollon Rim, which marks the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. It winds for 20 miles along Sycamore Creek and at places stretches 7 miles from rim to rim. Wind and water have exposed 7 geological associations of plants and animals set in a spectacular setting of red sandstone, white limestone, and brown lava.
Camping is limited by the often unreliable water sources. Visitors may get maps and information at Ranger District offices in Prescott, Williams, Flagstaff, and Sedona. Three National Forests, the Prescott, Kaibab, and Coconino share the boundaries and spectacular beauty of this 55,937-acre area.
