The North Rim of the Grand Canyon will finally reopen after seven months of closure. Each year the North Rim closes on October 15th and reopens on May 15. Highway 67 will reopen by 7 a.m. Saturday morning and Ranger programs will begin that afternoon. Grand Canyon Lodge and Grand Canyon Trail Rides will also begin their summer operations. the Visitor Center, campground, and backcountry permitting office, along with the Grand Canyon Association bookstore will all open at 8 a.m. The summer really gets into swing at the Grand Canyon when the entire park is open, and that starts this weekend!
We know every year when the “season” begins with the opening of the North Rim. The North Rim is further from the river than the South Rim, and is over 1,000 feet higher in elevation. Views and hiking are spectacular. Don’t miss out on this seldom visited view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World!
