The forest is nestled on the Colorado Plateau. The Mogollon Rim forms the south boundary. Grand Canyon National Park bisects the center of the forest. To the north, the forest extends almost to the border with Utah.
Elevations range from about 3,000 feet to 10,418 feet at the top of Kendrick Mountain. Beginning in low elevation grasslands and sagebrush, the forest steps up through forests of pinyon-juniper and ponderosa pine to fir, spruce and aspen. Summer temperatures range from 50° F at night to 80-90° during the day. Summer thunderstorms, known as the monsoon, can build up quickly, especially during July and August. Snow is common from December through March. -Kaibab National Forest. Here is a Printable Map of the Kaibab National Forest. For more information visit the Kaibab National Forest Web Site.
