Re: GCNP limited reopening

Anyone have any info on accessing South Bass Trail through Havasupai lands? Is the gate locked? Are they allowing access and if not is there a way to bypass tribal lands to get to the trail-head? Any existing BC permits are being honored, so I would suppose the Tribe will be open to taking your $$....

Re: South Rim Trail /Trailhead updates

@friendofThundergod I neglected to try the code (D'oh) when out there on my bike, and did not ride out to the Hermit BC lot. I believe that permits are again being issued for maybe October? (the GCNP BCO website is out-of-date), although the BCO remains closed, so no walk-up or short-notice permits.

Re: South Rim Trail /Trailhead updates

@chumley East/west confusion. As is the norm, the gubment has its own obtuse language. (It's part of the initial employee training) They MEAN that the the Kaibab route WILL run from the visitor center east, and then back (which is obviously west, but not in gub-speak). What they MEAN is that the Ka...

Re: South Rim Trail /Trailhead updates

Side note: This past weekend a few of us biked the newish 6 mi. path from Tusayan to the GC visitor center - it is paved and very nice. We continued out to Hermit Rest 11.5 mi. +/- and then returned the same way. Without ANY vehicular traffic and maybe 20 people along the whole distance - this may n...
