Why go there?

Pipe Spring has been a vital oasis in the desert for countless generations, providing water to Ancestral Puebloans, the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians, Spanish Missionaries, Mexican traders, United States explorers and ethnographers, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the National Park Service. Over time, the impact of natural and man-made forces has changed the landscape dramatically. However, the spring continues to flow, and its waters continue to sustain those who depend on it.
