Grand Canyon - Parashant National Monument

Arizona Strip and Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument Office

The Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument is under joint management of the BLM and the National Park Service.  Covering more than 1 million acres of remote and unspoiled public lands, this monument is a scientific treasure, containing many of the same values that have long been protected in Grand Canyon National Park.  Deep canyons, mountains, and lonely buttes testify to the power of geological forces and provide colorful vistas.  Here rock layers are relatively unobscured by vegetation, offering a clear view of the geologic rock formations and history of the Colorado Plateau.  The monument encompasses four wilderness areas on the lower portion of the Shivwits Plateau, an important watershed for the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon.  Beyond the phenomenal geological resources, the monument also contains countless biological and historical values.

The monument is located in the northwest corner of Arizona, bordering Nevada to the west and near the southern border of Utah. There are no paved roads or visitor services within the monument's million-plus acres. Visitors should be prepared for travel on rugged dirt roads. Traveling with an appropriate high clearance vehicle equipped with 8-ply or 10-ply tires or with two full-sized spare tires is recommended. The monument has entry roads from Nevada, Utah, and Arizona.

The BLM Arizona Strip Field Office is part of the BLM Arizona Strip District.
