Great views from both points of Crazy Jug Canyon, Tapeats Amphitheater, Steamboat Mountain and Great Thumb Mesa. Forest Road (FR) 425 is a sparsely traveled, primitive road through a valley of oak, aspen and Ponderosa stands. Interspersed among those stands area number of sunny, upland meadows and several excellent campsites. This is an excellent place to see deer, eagles, and coyotes as well as all of those smaller but just as interesting critters that frequent these habitats. Near Big Saddle point there is a large stock corral and FR 292 heads south to Crazy Jug point. The ride here is uphill and washboarded, but the view will make you forget the effort. A number of loop rides are possible off the main route using different combinations of roads Forest Road’s 425, 214, 272, 272A and 292.
Sometimes getting a permit into the Grand Canyon is impossible. I have applied and been turned down. But don't be discouraged. There are some awesome trails and campsites in the Kaibab National Forest. Crazy Jug is probably the most famous but if you have all wheel drive or an off road Bike, you can get almost any where in the forest for a great adventure.
make sure you have a road map. There are hundreds of back roads that act as a maze so don't get lost :)
