Pipe Spring National Monument

Pipe Spring National Monument lets you take a glimpse of American Indian and pioneer life in the Old West. The shortest way to Pipe Spring N.M. from Amber Inn Bed and Breakfast is through the unpaved road that begins in the center of Rockville (the same road can take you to the ghost town Grafton as well), at the bridge over the Virgin River. Take the road over the bridge and about 2 miles later, when you reach the “No Outlet” sign, take the left turn (the right turn would take you to Grafton). The road is unpaved, but quite passable when dry, and it offers several spectacular views like the one shown here:

Mountain views

Soon you will reach road 59 (paved!), take the left turn, an in less than 30 miles you will see an exit to the Pipe Spring National Monument.
