Temporary Trail Closures in Effect
The Wall Street side of the Navajo Loop is currently closed. This section of trail closes ever winter when freezing overnight temperatures combine with precipitation to greatly increase the risk of rockfall in this area. The Two Bridges side of the Navajo Loop remains open, allowing hikers to still enjoy combination hikes such as the Queen's/Navajo Combination Loop.
Backcountry Under-the-Rim Trail Damage and Hiker Advisory
Due to deteriorating trail conditions, those hiking the Under-the-Rim trail must understand that they do so at their own risk. Strong wayfinding skills are a must, and responses to emergency situations may be difficult and delayed.
Sheep Creek and Corral Hollow Backcountry Sites Closed
Due to bear activity, the Sheep Creek campsite is permanently closed to overnight use. Corral Hollow is temporarily closed.
Lighting or maintaining a fire is prohibited in all areas except:
When conditions of high wildfire dangers are reached within the park, additional fire and smoking prohibitions may be in place. While the public will be notified when such restrictions exist, this may occur without prior public notice.
