I wanted to let you know the plans for the Grand Canyon north rim trip if you still plan to come. If anything changes I will ensure you’re aware. 

 

For those coming along on the trip to the north rim of the Grand Canyon in June here's the plan as of now:

  • June 24th: Meet at Harmons Bangerter Crossing, 125 E 13800 South Draper, UT, at 9 AM and head out at 9:30 AM 
  • Travel south on I-15 and exit in Spanish Fork onto Hwy 6
  • Stay on Hwy 6 until the junction with Hwy 89
  • We should make it to Salina around lunchtime. As we have done in the past we'll have lunch at the Salina City Park. You can bring something from home or grab something to go in Salina or Harmons
  • After leaving Salina we'll get on I-70 West for about 34 miles then exit back onto Hwy 89 in Sevier.
  • From there it's straight south to Kanab.

After we pass Circleville the boyhood home of Butch Cassidy is just off the highway. This may be worth a stop to wander around.

  • June 25th: A lot will be squeezed into this one day so I'm anticipating an early start, around 8 AM. 
  • If you've never been to the north rim it's not anything like the south rim. Being out of the way, in a sense, it's not as crowded as the south side (hopefully). 
  • The facilities are limited for lunch, basically one snack bar by the lodge and the general store near the campground. 
  • Though the views in and around the lodge are amazing, you cannot see the river or the bottom as you can from the south rim. There is a drive east along the rim with views of the river we can take.
  • If you plan to hike there's a nice trail from the campground to the lodge. It would have to be an out and back. For something a little more secluded there's a couple of other trails near the lodge area. And if you want a little experience inside the canyon you can take the North Kaibab trail down to the first bridge and back. That will take a few hours if I remember right. 
  • Those wishing to drive to the Navajo Bridge the drive is worth it along Hwy 89A. There are some pretty amazing boulders along the highway. Also the walk out onto the bridge allows for some great views of Marble Canyon and the Colorado river. The last few times I've stopped here I've seen California Condors flying around.

  • June 26th: Continue on to the South Rim for several days – See Utah Miata Club website for details.

  • Participants can opt for either north or south rims or both
