Parashant National Monument

Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, established on January 11, 2000, is the first national monument for which joint management responsibilities were given to the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management. It is located in the northwest corner of Arizona, bounded on the south by Grand Canyon National Park, on the west by the Nevada boundary, and jutting northward nearly to the Utah border. It is a vast land of open, undeveloped spaces and engaging scenery. Encompassing an incredible biological diversity, the area spans four ecoregions, ranging from the Mojave Desert at 1,500 feet above sea level, to old-growth ponderosa pine forests at over 8,000 feet. This impressive landscape also contains an array of scientific and historic resources. Monument access is by dirt roads with no visitor services available
