The Navajo Trail is an old Indian and sheepherding trail. In 1871, John D. Lee traversed the Buckskin Mountain (Kaibab Plateau) by way of a "well-used" horse path; he is believed to be the first Anglo to use what is now called the Navajo Trail.
The trail traverses the scenic pinyon and juniper forests of House Rock Valley and the oak and pine of the Kaibab Plateau. It overlooks the Paria Plateau and its unique wind and water sculpted red rock formations.
This is a connecting trailhead with the Kaibab Plateau Trail (part of the Arizona Trail). The Navajo Trail continues west from Joe's Reservoir, across the plateau to the Forest boundary.
