Caution


Most roads, trails, and facilities are currently open. However, a few closures and restrictions are in effect.

Roads

The park is open 24 hours a day. All park roads are currently open. Construction delays of up to 30 minutes are possible on the Rim Drive this summer and fall.

Facilities
All park facilities are currently open.

Fires and Smoky Skies
Lightning on July 15 ignited hundreds of fires in southwest Oregon, including 15 in the park. The park's fires have all been contained or extinguished. They are not a threat to park attractions or visitors, and they are producing little to no smoke.

Smoke from fires outside the park, however, has been causing hazy skies, reduced visibility, and poor air quality on certain days. To check the current visibility at Rim Village, view our webcam. For information on air quality in the area, visit AirNow.gov or the Oregon Smoke Information Blog. For maps and information about specific fires, visit Inciweb, the Incident Information System website.

Weather
The National Weather Service provides the most accurate weather forecast for the park.

Hiking Trails
The Stuart Falls Trail is closed due to damage from last summer's fires. It will reopen sometime in 2019. All other trails in the park are open.
