Southern Kaibab Plateau Information

The southern Kaibab Plateau, much like its northern counterpart, is seldom visited despite its close proximity to the Grand Canyon. In keeping with its tradition for exploring remote areas of Arizona, the Arizona Trail also makes great use of the area. It traverses through the ponderosa pine forest covering much of the area along the Coconino Rim. The rim sits just above the eastern portion of Grand Canyon National Park and is also the site of a controversial proposed mine. Many people believe a mine at this location would permanently scar and alter the landscape so close to such an amazing natural treasure as the Grand Canyon. Controversies aside, the southern Kaibab Plateau is also covered in a large and healthy ponderosa pine forest. Many locals and visitors alike use these woods to great advantage to escape from the crowds nearby.
