State Route 67's remote location is among its attractions


By Peter Corbett / ADOT Communications


An ADOT video crew recently drove scenic State Route 67 between Jacob Lake and the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. You can enjoy footage from that trip above.

As of Monday, May 15, with park facilities reopening, you'll be able to do the same through SR 67's winding path through alpine meadows and forest.

The highway’s winter-season closure started Dec. 1. When park facilities shut down for the winter, and with an average of nine feet of snow falling each year, ADOT blocks the 40-plus-mile-long highway just south of US 89A rather than plowing it.

The North Rim accommodations, which are open from mid-May to mid-October, attract a fraction of Grand Canyon National Park’s 5 million visitors each year. The area's remote setting, more than 200 miles and a four-plus-hour drive from the South Rim, which is accessible throughout the year via SR 64, is among its attractions.

If you're interested in taking SR 67 to the North Rim after the route reopens next week, you need to get to US 89A either from the east (off US 89 south of Page) or from the west, often through Fredonia. Then head south from Jacob Lake and enjoy the view.
