PHOENIX — The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park will transition for day-use only operations starting Oct. 19, according to a release.

Access to the North Rim will be available on State Route 67 until Nov. 30 or the first major snowstorm of the season, depending on which comes first.

Visitors will not have access to the Grand Canyon Lodge which will be closed for campers and other accommodations.

The release advised visitors to be “self-sufficient” for the day.

Food and retail items will be available at The General Store and Grand Canyon Lodge from Wednesday through Sunday during business hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

For those seeking more information on the area, the North Rim Backcountry Information Center will be open until Oct. 31. After that date, the information center will continue to provide water.

Visitors can also call ahead at 928-638-7888 for more information and 1-888-411-ROAD for weather and travel restrictions.

The South Rim and Inner Canyon facilities will continue to remain open throughout the year.
