Road, Campground, and Trail Conditions

Temporary trail closures resulting from heavy rainfall-induced mud and rock slides
Temporary Trail closures resulting from heavy rainfall-induced mud and rock slides.

Temporary Trail Closures in Effect

Due to heavy monsoonal thunderstorms delivering around 4 inches (10 cm) of rain in just three days, multiple trails incurred damage from mud and rock slides. Trail crews are working to reopen these trails, and currently the Peekaboo Loop Connecting Trail is closed. All other front country trails remain open; hikers should be prepared for small wash outs.

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.

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. The Agua Canyon Connecting Trail remains closed due to rockfall.

Construction Projects

SR-12 Construction

The Utah Department of Transportation is constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of S.R. 12 and S.R. 63 in Bryce Canyon City. The project is part of UDOT's effort to improve driver safety through reduced speeds, traffic calming, improved visibility, and navigation improvements. Asphalt paving and safety enhancements continue from the roundabout at S.R 12/S.R. 63 along a 15-mile stretch to Henrieville.

Expected impacts: Travel delays should not exceed more than 10 minutes. Be prepared to stop for flaggers as alternating one-way traffic will be maintained in short increments during asphalt application between the passing project and the roundabout region. A pilot car will be utilized to escort traffic past the construction area.

SR-63 Rehabilitation

Asphalt paving and safety enhancements will resume from the roundabout at S.R 12/S.R. 63 along a 2-mile stretch through Bryce City.

Expected impacts: Travel delays should be minimal, as one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions through most of this stretch of roadway. In a few instances where lane availability is limited, one-way alternating traffic may be utilized in short distances. Be prepared to stop for flaggers.
