As you travel through the Kaibab National Forest north of the Grand Canyon heading toward Fredonia, Ariz., there is a gorgeous overlook where visitors can take in the vastness and beauty of the surrounding landscape.

Le Fevre Overlook is a popular scenic viewpoint on the North Kaibab Ranger District located just a few miles from the north end of the Kaibab Plateau on Scenic Byway 89A. It offers spectacular views of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument along with a number of other area attractions.

The Grand Staircase refers to an immense sequence of sedimentary rock layers that stretch south from Bryce Canyon National Park and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, through Zion National Park, and into the Grand Canyon National Park. The view from Le Fevre Overlook is an incredible expanse of hundreds of square miles of these highly varied stair steps and geologic wonders.

At the overlook, a large set of standing binoculars offers visitors the opportunity to get a close-up look of the landscape and its features. In addition, overlook guests will discover an installation of a beautiful interpretive painting depicting the Grand Staircase and displaying all of the rock layers.
