DescriptionTimp and North Timp Points lie at the end of a scenic drive through stately ponderosa pines. The Grand Canyon panorama is similar to the view from Parissawampitts Point. North Timp Point is the only known, easily accessible point on the North Kaibab where it is possible (with binoculars) to see Thunder River, a very large spring that emerges from an opening in the north wall of Tapeats Canyon.
Go 26.5 miles south from Kaibab Plateau Visitor Center on AZ 67 (0.7 mile beyond DeMotte Park Campground entrance) to FR 422. Turn west onto FR 422 for 2 miles to FR 270. Go south for 1 mile. Then turn west onto FR 222 and go 5 miles to FR 206; turn west and go less than 1/4 mile to FR 271. Follow FR 271 for about 8 miles to the end of the road at Timp Point or turn off FR 271 onto FR 271A to Timp Point.
