Report from the North Rim – date posted Dec 5, 2013

The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is closed for the season. It will reopen mid-May 2014.

The North Rim’s group campsite and a yurt can be reserved throughout the winter months. You must obtain your backcountry permit prior to arrival. The North Rim is only accessible via inner canyon trails from the South Rim or by cross-country skiing and snowshoeing from Jacob Lake (a 45 mile trip).

The North Rim will open for the summer season mid-May 2014 (usually May 15th). Locations near the 8,000 foot level such as Pt. Sublime, high elevation access to Nankoweap, and the North Bass Trailhead will not be accessible until road beds have dried and downed trees have been removed, often in late May, but possibly as late as mid-June.
