If you are planning to do a Diamond Down trip, the accessibility & permitting process is far easier than for the main Grand Canyon section. You must get both an NPS and Hualapai Permit.

NPS: Diamond Creek to Lake Mead River Permit Application

Hualapai: Hualapai Nation Game and Fish Department at 928-769-2227 or 928-769-1122 or by email at
