Know Before You Go
Located about 7.5 miles east of FlTo reach Walnut Canyon from Flagstaff, travel east on Interstate 40 toward Albuquerque. Take Exit 204, and head south. The Walnut Canyon Visitor Center is located at the end of this three mile road. It complements the Grand Canyon National Park so well; green where the Grand Canyon is arid, small where the Grand Canyon is enormous, and completely manageable in one morning. Walnut Canyon is a National Monument and has frequent tours and stationed interpreters. The visitor center has a picnic area, bathroom, and water fountain.
