Diamond Creek Road may be the best kept secret on old US 66. This road takes you to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Over its 21 miles, Diamond Creek Road drops from an elevation of 4,798 feet at Peach Springs, to 1,343 feet at the Colorado River. 

The road is part of the Hualapai Indian Tribal Land. You must have a permit from Hualapai Nation to travel this road and the permits tend to be a little pricey. You can buy your permit(s) at the Hualapai Lodge in Peach Springs.

Should you decide to travel this road you're on your own.  There are no gas stations or convenience stores, no cell phone coverage, and for the most part, no other traffic. Make sure your vehicle is good condition before you attempt this drive.

The road is rough, 4 wheel drive is recommended.

There is beautiful scenery along the way, just don't be in a hurry and think of this trip as an adventure!

Peach Springs is 47 miles east of Kingman, AZ.
