Kaibab National Forest Visitor Map, Tusayan and Williams Ranger Districts


Welcome to Williams and Tusayan Ranger Districts of Kaibab National Forest. Kaibab National Forest began with the establishment of Grand Canyon Forest Reserve in 1893 and San Francisco Mountain Reserve in 1898. Theodore Roosevelt created the Grand Canyon Game Preserve in 1906, then a National Monument in 1908. The Forest Service administered the Grand Canyon until it was made a National Park in 1919. Grand Canyon Forest Reserve included the lands around the Grand Canyon, while San Francisco Mountain Reserve encompassed the lands around Williams and Flagstaff. In 1908, the forest and the lands south of the Colorado River became Coconino National Forest. The lands north of the river became Kaibab National Forest. In 1910, the area around Williams and south of the Colorado River was split from Coconino National Forest and named Tusayan National Forest after the Spanish name for the Hopi Pueblos. Both Tusayan and Kaibab National Forest boundaries were changed in 1919 by the formation of Grand Canyon National Park. Finally, in 1934, Tusayan National Forest and Kaibab National Forest (the current North Kaibab Ranger District) were combined to form the present forest boundaries. Williams and Tusayan Ranger Districts of Kaibab National Forest are on the Coconino Plateau. Williams Ranger District surrounds the city of Williams, Arizona; Tusayan Ranger District is south of Grand Canyon National Park. Elevations within the forest are as low as 5,000 feet in the southwest to a high of 10,418 feet on Kendrick Mountain near the eastern boundary. Most of the terrain is relatively level except for numerous small knolls, a few volcanic mountains, the Mogollon Rim, which cuts diagonally across the southwest portion of the forest, and the Coconino Rim on Tusayan Ranger District. Piñon-juniper woodlands occur at lower elevations, ponderosa pine forests at middle elevations, and mixed conifer interspersed with aspen at higher elevations. Summer temperatures range from 50ºF at night to 80 - 90ºF during the day. TRAVEL ON THE FOREST More Americans than ever are using off-highway vehicles (OHVs) to enjoy the outdoors. However, if not managed carefully, motorized recreation can damage both the land and the resources. In 2005, the Forest Service published the Travel Management Rule which requires that each national forest and grassland provide for a system of National Forest System (NFS) roads, NFS trails, and areas on NFS lands designated for motor vehicle use and to display those designations on a motor vehicle use map (MVUM). It is the responsibility of the visitor to obtain and comply with the national forest’s or grassland’s current MVUM. MAP SCOPE AND LIMIT The only rules shown on this map are those that are general in nature and that apply broadly throughout the South Kaibab National Forest. The forest supervisor may issue rules that supplement or differ from those on this map. Modifications will be posted in the forest supervisor’s office, ranger district offices, and at affected sites.
