The North Rim of the Grand Canyon will reopen Tuesday (6/30) for day use, national parks officials announced.
The gate will be opened at 6 a.m. and services will be limited on the Kaibab Plateau as the Mangum Fire continues to burn but has reached 63% containment. The blaze has eaten through more than 71,000 acres.
Park visitors will be mostly on their own. The visitor center and campground are closed, as are: the Grand Canyon Lodge, food and beverage services, the General Store, trail rides, gift shop and the bookstore, according to a press release.
The North Rim Backcountry Information Center is open but no new permits will be issued, officials said.
