North Rim Closing

We are travelling from Eastern Canada in October, hoping to be able to visit the North Rim. We will not be able to arrive at the GC befgre Sept 16, possibly a day or two later. Should we attempt to travel to the North Rim, or might be encounter bad road conditions or weather? How does one know exactly when the park closes?

The North Rim is scheduled to close on Oct 22 this year, due to it opening late because of heavy snowpack in May. It can close at anytime if weather conditions become severe.

You can get current road conditions online at www.az511.com/hcrsweb/hcrsweb.jsp… or by calling 888-411-ROAD (7623).

If you want to stay in the park, try to make your reservations now, either online at www.grandcanyonnorthrim.com or from Canada, call 303-297-2757.
