It’s the spookiest day of the year, and the Grand Canyon National Park has one interesting guest visiting the North Rim of the Grand Canyon!
Yes, contrary to popular belief, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is still open. If you’re in the Southern Utah region plan on taking a short detour to the North Rim. Did you know the North Rim of the Grand Canyon only sees 10% of the annual visitors to this National Park? With low attendance numbers, you practically have the whole north side of the park to yourself. Please keep in mind, if you choose to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon this time of year most services are closed for the season. The lodge is closed, but you can still find the General Store open for those must have snacks and drinks. You can also spend time on the patio at the lodge, or take the beautiful scenic drive to Point Imperial or Cape Royal trails. Access to the North Rim will remain open until December 1, 2018 or until the first significant snowfall. After December 1 a great alternative to the North Rim is the Marble Canyon Loop (visit our visitor center for a map). Along the Marble Canyon Loop you will get to see the vistas of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, the start of the Grand Canyon at Marble Canyon and Lees Ferry, as well as the beautiful Navajo Bridge.
