Highway 67 - Arizona

ADOT road conditions report

Highway 67 passes through the forested lands of the Kaibab National Forest and Jacob Lake. Highway 67 often closes after the first heavy snow and does not open again until mid-May.

AZ Highway 67 Closure

Check to see if roads are open from mid-October to mid-May when services close down at the North Rim. The Grand Canyon Lodge and Grand Canyon Visitor Center close mid-October each year, but the North Rim itself and the trails remain open. Note that the North Rim is a primitive area with few services. If visiting the Grand Canyon North Rim after the lodge closes, be prepared for no services after Jacob Lake. The North Rim is open to winter backcountry use. Permits are required for overnight camping.

Forest Service Roads

Kaibab forest offers great, unpopulated summer drives, through ponderosa pine and aspen forests to vistas of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon that are just as good or better than anything seen from either rim.

Grand Canyon views from the Kaibab Forest

Many feel that the best views of the Grand Canyon are from Crazy Jug Point and Timp Point. Crazy Jug Point is near Monument Point which is a popular trailhead for Thunder River and Deer Creek. If lucky enough to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in October, try the forest service road to Timp Point which is the better view point of the two. This path traverses rows of aspen, and in October it's stunning with fall colors. Bring binoculars to get a great view of Thunder River flowing from Tapeats Canyon.

Dispersed Camping in the Kaibab Forest

Dispersed camping is permitted in Kaibab National Forest as long as it is outside the Grand Canyon National Park boundaries. Leave no trace. Pack out what you pack in. Camp away from water and roads. Call 928.638.2443

Jacob Lake

Services often remain open at Jacob Lake after the North Rim Grand Canyon Lodge closes in mid-October. Don't bring your boat to Jacob Lake looking to launch it. Jacob Lake is a small pond on private property.

Kaibab Plateau Visitor Center

The Kaibab Plateau Visitor Center usually remains open after the Grand Canyon North Rim services shut down for the winter. The Kaibab Visitor Center closure date varies.

Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.
