While you’re in the area, don’t forget that we are just a few miles from the Grand Canyon West, where you can walk out on the glass Sky Walk, and admire the Canyon the way the eagles do. On your way to the Sky Walk, you will drive through our small community, and the Joshua tree forest, seeing wonderful rock formations and traveling in an area that was once home for gold miners and ancient tribes of Native Americans.
To find us, travel north from Kingman or south from Las Vegas, on highway 93. At mile marker 42, turn east. Our community is about 5 miles east of the highway on Scenic Route 25 (aka Pierce Ferry Road). Please stop into the Chamber of Commerce building, sign our guest book and get more information about sights and adventures available in our area.
