Work Will Improve Services at Grand Canyon North Rim

Visitor facilities and services at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon will be improved under a new plan being developed by the National Park Service. The visitors center will be upgraded, a new kiosk would be placed near the park entrance to better direct traffic, parking areas would be expanded, and a new trail will be built between the North Kaibab trailhead and the lodge.

Public comment on the upgrades will be accepted through Aug. 16.

The North Rim is located in a remote area south of the Utah town of Kanab. It draws far less tourists than the South Rim, even though it offers more spectacular views of the canyon. The elevation is much higher than the South Rim and so the area receives heavy winter snowfall. Roads to the North Rim are usually open from May through October.

More information about the upgrades.
