“PERMIT required - don't attempt without 4WD”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We are boondocking in the Kaibab National Forest and rode to Fire Point on our adventure bike. We walked into a situation where a camper who did not have a NPS permit was being rousted by a newly arrived camper who did. Later, while on the way to Point Sublime, we stopped and chatted with a NPS ranger doing back country patrol. One of her duties is to check for permits. So, be aware, a Permit is required from Grand Canyon NP.

The previous reviewer remarks that the last 1/2 mile is tight. I would also add that the road is ROUGH. That last 1/2 mile is NPS not NF and the road is not maintained to the same standard as NF roads. A Toyota 4 Runner was behind us and hesitated. The rousted camper was in a tent and the newly arrived camper was a $75K (seriously) pop up camper from Australia. I believe the above reviewer has a truck camper. All that to say that (as a 5W owner on the road full time 3 years) I would be very reluctant to attempt to get to this site without high clearance 4WD and a very small, nimble camper. Also, be aware that even with a permit, you will likely have visitors to the view point.

If you're all about the view and have the appropriate vehicle/camper combo, Point Sublime is unbelievable! It can either be accessed from the NP (2 hours on a very rough 10 mile road) or more miles but better roads through Kaibab NF.

We came out in May, the first week the Park was open for the season. The drive out to Fire Points is on an easy dirt road. However there were any number of trees down, and we had to winch a few out of the way, and drive around a couple more trees. The last 1/2 is tight, as the road weaves tightly through several trees. Our trucks (25 feet long and 8 feet wide) fit through, but it took some delicate driving to do so. The view is well worth the long-ish drive. We greatly enjoyed staying here. Note there are NO facilities of any kind, other than the incredible view. Next time we come here, we plan on staying far longer.

Each day at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we went on long drives down dirt roads in hopes of finding a magical boondocking spot. How’s this look? Forest Service Road...
