Tourism Council
Highway 67 in
Northern Arizona

Note: Highway 67 often closes after the first heavy snow after Thanksgiving and does not open again until mid-May.

Road Conditions

Arizona Highway 67 is 44 miles long, starting at Jacob Lake, the junction of Arizona Highway 89A and Highway 67 and ending at Bright Angel Point at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. This is the final pathway to the Grand Canyon. For those that will venture into Northern Arizona to find the Grand Canyon, the path will be a scenic one. Travel through the Kaibab National Forest is a scenic trip where both sides of the road are lined with rows of aspens and conifers.

 

Kaibab National Forest

When traveling Highway 67 there are some things you will not want to miss in the Kaibab National Forest. The dirt roads described below will take you to some incredible views of the Grand Canyon. Do take the time to stop in the Kaibab Forest Visitor Center and get last minute updates for any of these roads.

Crazy Jug Point
You will see the Colorado River between Powell Plateau and Great Thumb Mesa, as well as Tapeats Amphitheater. Camping is allowed in this area as long as you are outside the Grand Canyon boundaries. The park monitors the rim but the rest of the area is maintained by the Forest Service. 

Timp Point
Timp Point is another of the great spots in the Kaibab Forest that give a wonderful view of the Grand Canyon.  If you take along some binoculars you may even get a glimpse of Thunder River.

Detailed Directions to Crazy Jug Point and Timp Point

Winter Travel

Highway 67 passes through the forested lands of the Kaibab National Forest to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is often rumored that the North Rim of the Grand Canyon closes in mid-October when the lodge closes, but ADOT does try and keep the roads open until the first heavy snow storm after Thanksgiving.  Keep in mind that if you do choose to travel after the lodge closes, there are usually no services open past Jacob Lake.  Call for Road Conditions on the day of planned travel since winter conditions can change quickly and the road may close.

Naturalist NotesNature Notes

Mule deer of the of the Grand Canyon are often victims of predators. In history, it was thought that to protect the mule deer its predators needed to be eliminated. Without the natural balance of nature just the opposite happened. In the winter of 1925 the mule deer population is thought to have emptied the food in the Kaibab and then the deer starved to death in masses. The practice of killing predators is no longer followed.
