A 44-mile-long, paved scenic drive that traverses the forested Kaibab Plateau to Bright Angel Point on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. The scenic drive begins in Jacob Lake at the intersection of U.S. Highway 89A and Arizona Highway 67. Jacob Hamblin, a Mormon explorer, lent his name to shallow Jacob Lake. During the 1850s through the 1870s, he poked around northern Arizona, looking for town sites for prospective Mormon settlements. Hamblin, also a missionary among the Hopi and Navajo, negotiated several treaties with local Indians. Jacob Lake, at 7,900 feet, is a small service community with gas, groceries, lodging, and a restaurant available. At the intersection of the highways is Jacob Lake Campground, a fifty-three-site National Forest campground. There are several hiking trails nearby. Ask at the Forest Service visitor center in Jacob Lake for more information. Just south of town on the drive is an RV park.
