GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — Beginning Nov. 30, the North Rim was closed to all vehicle traffic for the winter.

State Route 67 and all services on the North Rim are expected to re-open May 15.

As in years past, the North Rim campground will be available for winter camping and is accessible via hiking inner canyon trails from the South Rim or by hiking, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing 45 miles from Jacob Lake. To camp at the North Rim during the winter months, visitors need a backcountry permit, which can be obtained in advance through the South Rim Backcountry Information Center.
