Diamond Creek Road
This broad, dusty road will take you down to the Colorado River close to the western end of Grand Canyon National Park. It is beautiful, but not a match for the majesty of the main canyon. A reservation and a permit are required, as the road is owned and cared for by the Hualapai Indian Reservation. You can get a permit at Hualapai Lodge that sits across from the trailhead. The nearest fuel station is 7 miles away on Route 66.
