Trail Overview

Russell Tank Road weaves its way gently through the glorious Ponderosa Pines of the Kaibab National Forest on the Coconino Plateau. There are no obstacles over 12" on the pretty single-track dirt road, but there is plenty to see. Elk about in this area and large primitive campsites are sporadically scattered, with evidence of past kills.

Access Description

Russell Tank can be reached by driving east on FR 320, from state Route 64. (FR 320 is located approximately 11.5 miles south of the town of Tusayan or 40 miles north of the city of Williams.) Continue east on FR 320 to the FR 311 intersection. Turn north onto FR 311; the tank is along a short spur road off of FR 311. Access is also available through Grand Canyon National Park, but an entrance fee must be paid.
