Arizona Highway ALT 89

Highway 89ALe Fevre Overlook

Along Highway 89 Alt you will have the rare chance to catch a glimpse of all the steps of the Grand Staircase from the Le Fevre Overlook. If you are on Highway 89A chances are you are headed for the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. As one of the seven wonders of the world, this enormous Arizona National Park demands attention. Unlike Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon is a true canyon, or better said ... many canyons, over six hundred of them. Looking down upon the rocky landscape from Bright Angel Point, at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, however it does look like one long jagged canyon. Secluded high on the Kaibab Plateau, away from cities and airports, the North Rim remains a place of wonder for many that come from Arizona, but Utah travelers often include the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in their vacation plans.

Highway 67 Closure

Highway 67 leading to the North Rim opens mid-May each year. The date the road closes depends on snowfall, but you can usually count on it being open until at least Thanksgiving. The last few years Highway 67 has closed the first or second week of December.

Call the Fredonia, Arizona Forest Service office for road conditions the day of planned travel since winter conditions can change daily.

Naturalist NotesNature Notes

Kaibab squirrels are unique to the Kaibab Plateau, found only in the Ponderosa pine forest of the North Kaibab and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Albert squirrel is found at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This has resulted in the squirrels taking on enough of their own characteristics to be called a new species and, at the least, a subspecies.
