Grand Canyon Travel Guide from Peach Springs

Traveling from Peach Springs, AZ to the Grand Canyon

Peach Springs is a small town near the western Grand Canyon on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. The hub of recreational activity in Peach Springs is centered around whitewater rafting on the Colorado River.  From the town of Peach Springs, a half hour drive down a dirt road leads you to the Colorado River along Diamond Creek. This is where many of the multi-day Grand Canyon Rafting trips end their journey, but it is also the starting point for the Grand Canyon's only one-day whitewater trip.  Peach Springs is also a good place to spend the night before trekking down to Havasu Falls, accessed by a 10-mile trail into the Grand Canyon.  The trailhead to this amazing destination is about an hour from Peach Springs, which along with Seligman is one of the only places to stay before hiking down to the Falls.

Peach Springs is the headquarters for the Hualapai Tribe and their only major population center. Located on historic Rt. 66 Peach Springs is also close to Grand Canyon Caverns, and the town of Seligman. Peach Spring is also fairly close (by Grand Canyon Standards) to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is also run by the Hualapai Tribe, so you can get any info you need from the lodge. From Peach Springs, the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is about the same distance as the Skywalk and is the most popular Grand Canyon destination. Read the guide below to learn more about travel from Peach Springs to the Grand Canyon, or check out our Peach Springs, AZ map to see all the nearby destinations and attractions.
