  • We were the only ones there! Photos don't do it justice. The colors are amazing. If it rains you should have a 4x4 to navigate the muddy terrain, especially to get back out off the inclined road.  more »
  • We risked not getting the $12 permit per person and drove over. It was interesting seeing all these odd shaped pinnacles.Fortunately we weren't stopped as the penalty is quite severe. Worth a look.  more »
  • Love this place!! I hope that it stays a local secret. If you plan to go you MUST get a permit from the reservation. The canyon is on private property. I photographed an adventure anniversary session here in the summer!! Love this spot for an Arizona Elopement.
  • Beautiful pair of canyons in the middle of nowhere. Plug "Coal Mine Canyon" into your gps and you'll be taken to the entrance off of 264. You don't need a 4 wheel drive vehicle as it has been suggested, my Nissan Sentra was able to handle the drive perfectly.
