  1. On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the South Rim Backcountry Information Center (BIC) transitioned to issuing backcountry permits via phone and email only (no in-person service).

  2. ************************************************* There has been a pipeline break on a section of the pipeline north of Phantom Ranch. Phantom Ranch Lodge is closed starting Aug 31. No commercial services will be available at Phantom Ranch, including lodging, food service, and the store. Water is OFF at Phantom Ranch, Bright Angel Campground, Cottonwood Campground, and Manzanita Day Use Area. Bright Angel Campground and Cottonwood Campground are open, but campers must be prepared to treat creek water. Hikers must bring a water purification system. ************************************************* Grand Canyon's water supply comes from Roaring Springs, a natural spring located approximately 3,500 feet below the North Rim. Water is delivered via an aging pipeline that suffers multiple breaks a year. When the pipeline breaks, water stops flowing to the North and South Rims and sites along the way. Although large storage tanks provide ample water to rim locations, while the pipeline is being repaired water may or may not be available below the rim in the cross-canyon Corridor. Please remember, when hiking below the rim a method to treat water must always be part of your hiking gear. The list below shows if water is on or off (if the pipeline is undergoing repairs water may be off temporarily) North Kaibab Trailhead: water ON Supai Tunnel: water ON Roaring Springs Day Use Area: water OFF Manzanita Day Use Area: water water OFF Cottonwood Campground: water water OFF Bright Angel Campground: water OFF Plateau Point: water ON Indian Garden: water ON Bright Angel Trail, Three-Mile Resthouse: water ON Bright Angel Trail, Mile-and-a-Half Resthouse: water ON Bright Angel Trailhead: water ON South Kaibab Trailhead: water ONSeasonal water stations are usually turned off for the winter sometime between Oct 10th and 30th dependent on location and associated temperatures. Water available (year-round) on the South Rim at the Backcountry Information Center in the lobby. Water available (year-round) on the North Rim outside the Backcountry Information Center. Additional water bottle filling stations can be found on the Go "Green" and Refill Your Water Bottles web page. Plan Ahead and Prepare: A backup method to treat water, should the pipeline break, must always be included as part of your hiking gear. Backcountry hikers should always carry extra water.

  3. ************************************************* Grand Canyon National Park has temporarily instituted closures for the portion of the Ikes Fire Planning Area that is within Grand Canyon National Park. The following areas are closed: The Powell Plateau Trail on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. The North Bass Trail on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Fire Point on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Swamp Point on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. The W4 road north of Kanabownits Lookout on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. This closure will remain in effect until further notice. Other roads and trails in the planning area may be temporarily blocked off due to hazards and fire personnel working in the area. For more info visit https://www.nps.gov/grca/learn/management/firemanagement.htm ************************************************* After heavy summer rain (July and August) or winter snow (December through March), expect impassable backcountry roads. If clear skies abound after the rain or snow, then it is often just a matter of days until the sun dries everything out. Sometimes, heavy rain or melting snow can lead to flooding, which can cause erosion of the roadbed and can delay access. Other considerations for visitors travelling on remote backcountry roads include high clearance, such as may be needed on Forest Road 328 to South Bass Trailhead (limestone ledges) and on the final approach to Toroweap overlook (sandstone knobs and ledges). Finally, consider elevation of the road that you will be travelling on, especially during the winter months. Roads in the 6,500 to 8,000 foot range may be impassable due to a snowpack, where lower elevations roads (below 6,000 feet) will see deteriorated road conditions due to rain. Always check road conditions with the Backcountry Information Center before heading out to remote trailheads, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back, and be adaptable and prepared for the worst. High clearance, four-wheel drive is usually recommended for roads to remote trailheads. ------------------------------------------ It is not uncommon for trees to fall and block access to remote trailheads. When you encounter a road blocked by fallen trees, what should you do? Report the location and diameter of the tree to Grand Canyon park dispatch (928-638-7805) as soon as possible. The park will assign staff to clear the road. If an appropriate (not blocking the road and not damaging vegetation) place to park is available, park your vehicle and continue to the trailhead on foot. Do not drive off-road attempting to bypass the obstacle, doing so can cause resource damage. Gesamten Artikel anzeigen
