Grand Canyon's North Rim reopens for the season

The road to the Grand Canyon’s north rim is now open.

The winding State Route 67 was closed for winter in December and just reopened as the North Rim resumes operations at the national park. Park Service officials typically close the North Rim toward the end of November. Last year, it didn’t reopen until early June after winter storms damaged a long stretch of water line. 

Only a fraction of national park visitors make it to the north rim. But it’s worth the drive. Summer lectures and nature walks are already underway.
