Arizona 67 is a short road that connects US 89A to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The 30.8 mile road travels along the Kaibab Plateau, through Kaibab National Forest until reaching the boundary of Grand Canyon National Park.

Arizona 67 was first constructed around 1926, and added to the State Highway System between 1936 and 1941. (The exact add date is inconclusive, as it appears on maps as early as 1936, but does not show as adopted into the system until 1941). The route has not changed since original construction. While the road is signed inside Grand Canyon National Park, the road inside the park is maintained by the National Park Service and is not part of the State Highway System.

Arizona 67 is closed during the winter, from the first snowfall until May 15th. Visitor Services at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon are offered from May 15 until mid-October.
