Parashant National Monument

Parashant National Monument is a geological and natural paradise. A million plus acres of land stretch across sprawling landscapes, with a significant portion located along the northern edge of the Grand Canyon.

History & Nature

Here, you can examine layers of the earth’s history and make your own judgements as to aspects of its formation and development. Mule deer, bighorn sheep, wild turkey, and a variety of birds call this region home.

Things To Do

Bring your ATV for a wild ride. The terrain is rough and largely untouched. It’s even recommended that you bring two spare tires for your car on the way in. Expect a bumpy ride.

While you’ll want to take extra precautions for your horse (like bringing plenty of water, and being on the lookout for uneven terrain), Parashant National Monument offers great opportunities to explore the west like the original wranglers—out in the desert on horseback.

Though permits are extremely limited, this is one of the premier mule deer hunting areas in the country. Contact the Arizona Game and Fish Department for permits and more information.
