What if we told you there were scenic overlooks in Arizona with views that rival the Grand Canyon? One of them can be found at the Little Colorado River Gorge, located on the Navajo Nation in Cameron. Just 10 miles from the Grand Canyon, this tribal park is a hidden gem that will surely drop your jaw. The best part? Almost nobody knows it exists.
Hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. The entrance fee is $5 per person, or $12 if you’d like to explore the area further on a backcountry hike. Click here to learn more about the gorge.
