Description
Off SR 389 15 miles west of Fredonia, Pipe Spring National Monument preserves a life-sustaining water source that Paiute Indians called Mu-tum-wa-va, or Dripping Rock. In the early 1870s, Mormon pioneers built a compound over the springs consisting of a sandstone fort and ranch house. Tours of the fort, named Winsor Castle, are offered. Pipe Spring has long served as a way station for weary travelers. The visitor center offers exhibits and a movie about Kaibab and pioneer culture and history.
Allow 1 hour minimum. Daily 8-5, May-Aug.; 8:30-4:30, rest of year. Closed Jan. 1, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tours of Winsor Castle are given daily generally on the half-hour in summer; otherwise varies. Admission $7; free (ages 0-15). Phone (928) 643-7105.
