DescriptionBuck Ridge Point is probably one of the least visited overlooks on the North Kaibab, but one of the most interesting. This scenic vista provides a truly unique view of the Arizona Strip, the plateaus of southern Utah, Mt. Trumbull, and the communities of Fredonia, Arizona, and Kanab, Utah. The amount of land visible from here exceeds that of many states.
The route follows a gravel road suitable for passenger vehicles. The drive should take only 15 to 20 minutes.
(plus 1/2 hour hike)
Drive 1/4 mile south of the Kaibab Plateau Visitor Center on AZ 67 at Jacob Lake. Drive west on Forest Service Road 461 to FSR 264. FSR 264 is closed to vehicles, but it is only a one mile hike down the road bed to the site of an old cabin and abandoned copper mine.
