Grand Canyon North Rim

The North Rim is the quiet side of Grand Canyon National Park.  Only ten miles from the South Rim as the crow flies, its takes 4 hours driving time to get to the North Rim from Grand Canyon Village.  The North Rim is on average 1,000 feet higher than the South Rim resulting in a very different ecosystem. This higher elevation also results in higher snowfall, which closes the North Rim from the first major snowstorm (usually in late November) until May 15th.  Facilities at the North Rim are open May 15th through October 15th every year.
