Pipe Springs National Monument
This desert oasis was declared a national monument in 1923 as a "memorial of western pioneer life". It is located on the Kaibab Indian Reservation and is an easy 25 mile drive southwest of Kanab via U.S. Highway 89A and Arizona Highway 389.
Tours of Winsor Castle are provided daily on the hour and half hour, all year long. and during the summer, rangers give "living history" demonstrations, bringing historic pioneer and Indian traditions to life. Visitors are welcome to tour the orchard and garden, historic out-buildings, and a scenic half-mile Ridge Trail at their own pace. At the visitor center and museum you can enjoy an extensive array of high quality exhibits on Southern Paiute and pioneer culture and history.
Pipe Spring also lies on the recently designated Old Spanish National Historic Trail. More information on the Monument is available at http://www.nps.gov/pisp/.
