Grand Canyon’s water supply comes from Roaring Springs, a natural spring located approximately 3,500 feet below the North Rim. Water is delivered via an aging pipeline that suffers multiple breaks a year. When the pipeline breaks, water stops flowing to the North and South Rims and sites along the way. Although large storage tanks provide ample water to rim locations, while the pipeline is being repaired water may or may not be available below the rim in the cross-canyon Corridor. Please remember, when hiking below the rim a method to treat water must always be part of your hiking gear.

The list below shows if water is on or off (if the pipeline is undergoing repairs water may be off temporarily)

  • North Kaibab Trailhead: water OFF
  • Supai Tunnel: water OFF
  • Roaring Springs Day Use Area: water ON
  • Manzanita Rest Area: water ON
  • Cottonwood Campground: water OFF
  • Bright Angel Campground: water ON
  • Plateau Point: water OFF
  • Indian Garden: ON year-round
  • Bright Angel Trail, Three-Mile Resthouse: water OFF
  • Bright Angel Trail, Mile-and-a-Half Resthouse: water OFF
  • Bright Angel Trailhead: ON year-round
  • South Kaibab Trailhead: water OFF temporarily

Seasonal water stations are usually turned off for the winter sometime between Oct 10th and 30th dependent on location and associated temperatures.

Water available (year-round) on the South Rim at the Backcountry Information Center in the lobby. Water available (year-round) on the North Rim outside the Backcountry Information Center. Additional water bottle filling stations can be found on the Go “Green” and Refill Your Water Bottles web page.

Plan Ahead and Prepare: A backup method to treat water, should the pipeline break, must always be included as part of your hiking gear. Backcountry hikers should always carry extra water.
