GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — The mile-and-a-half composting toilet facility will be temporarily unavailable on the Bright Angel Trail March 18 through April 6.

Hikers should plan ahead before entering the canyon and use either the restroom facilities at the Bright Angel Trailhead or at the Three-Mile Rest House.

Grand Canyon trail crew staff, along with contractors, will close the Mile-and-a-Half composting toilet facility on the Bright Angel Trail for much needed maintenance and evacuation. The tanks must be completely evacuated to perform the necessary maintenance.
