  • While driving the south rim of the canyon we stopped at the Spider Rock overlook. It is the last stop on the south rim. What an amazing overlook.

  • Spider rock is so beautiful and peaceful. It was a 9 to 11 me drive to this point from the entrance to the park. There is a parking lot so you don't have to worry.

  • Fabulous natural monument. I belive there are overlooks where you can view it from the rim. To see it from within the canyon requires a tour with a Navajo guide. I highly recommend this, if you are willing and can handle a 4/6 wheel drive vehicle adventure.
  • Came here, allured to re-live the experience and scenery from the classic movie McKenna's Gold. I was not disappointed!! There is no gold, but the Golden Ray's of rising sun, the shifting of the long shadoes of towering rocks and formations were enchanting. One can hear the sound of the river 800 feet down below. The view of the canyon from this location is extensive on all the three (two upstream and the downstream branches). The cliff is 700 feet steep drop, so caution needs to be adopted for going to the edge.
