Things To Do

Pipe Spring National Monument-Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians Visitor Center and Museum
Pipe Spring National Monument and the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians recently teamed up and developed a new museum. Through twelve new exhibits visitors learn about the history of the Kaibab Paiutes, their interactions with other tribes and cultures, the movement of Mormon settlers into the area, as well as modern day Paiute culture. The museum is open daily and includes a five-minute introductory video. You may also visit the museum via virtual tour.

Guided Tours
Winsor Castle (the Fort) is accessible by ranger-guided tours. These tours are offered every thirty minutes, on the hour and half hour, all year long.

On Your Own
The grounds of the monument can be visited on your own. The East and West Cabins contain exhibits on cowboys and historic preservation.  Enjoy pioneer and American Indian crops from the garden during the summer. The orchard contains mostly historic varieties of peach, apple, apricot, plum, and crabapple trees, as well as grapes.  Stop by the corrals and visit the horses and longhorn cattle. A hike on the half-mile Ridge Trail offers great views of the Arizona Strip.
 
Talks and Demonstrations
During the summer months ranger guided walks, talks, and demonstrations of pioneer and American Indian crafts and ways of life are offered daily in the cooler morning hours.
