GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. — Motorists soon will be able to make their way back
to the Grand Canyon’s North Rim.
The Arizona Department of Transportation said State Route 67 will reopen
May 15. It’s closed regularly over the winter season because of heavy snowfall.
The road lies at the southern end of the Kaibab Plateau, linking Jacob Lake to
the North Rim. The plateau is about 8,500 feet in elevation and offers
spectacular views of the canyon.
Services at the North Rim that include a lodge and gas station also will reopen
The more popular South Rim stays open year-round. The drive between the two
rims is about 215 miles.
