North Rim of the Grand Canyon
A little over 2 hours from Page, AZ
One of the most spectacular examples of erosion anywhere in the world, the Grand Canyon is unmatched in the incomparable vistas it offers to visitors on the rim.
The North Rim is 44 miles south of Jacob Lake, AZ, via highway 67. The North Rim is closed from mid-October through mid-May. The North Rim is 8000 feet above sea level and can receive snow almost any time of the year. Weather is particularly interesting in spring and fall; visitors should be prepared for a variety of climates.
The high altitude of both the South and North Rims may cause visitors with respiratory or heart problems to experience difficulties. All walking at this elevation can be strenuous.
There is no shuttle service on the North Rim.
