Looking for transport to north rim advice.

Post by christopherbm »

My wife and I have permits to hike rim to rim at the very end of November. We are flying in from Oregon. There are no shuttles at that point and we are trying to figure out how to get dropped off at the North Rim. We are absolutely willing to fairly compensate for time and gas. Any advice would be appreciated!

Highway 67 south of Jacobs Lake usually closes by December 1. Once that occurs, the North Rim closes to vehicular traffic.

Yes, our permits start on the 30th. If there is snow and/or the roads close early we have alternative plans. We are hoping to still start on the North side tho.
