Visitors have a couple more weeks to take advantage of full services at the Grand Canyon’s North Rim.
The national park starts reducing services on October 16 for the winter season. The lodge and restaurants, shower and laundry facilities, restrooms, trail rides and a bookstore will close that day. A gift shop and gas station will have limited services. Portable restrooms will be available. The North Rim Visitor Center and a scenic drive stay open through the end of October, though snowy weather could change things.
The North Rim reopens each year in mid-May.
The Grand Canyon’s more popular South Rim stays open year-round.
