White Rim Road Repairs Continue
Contact: Backcountry Reservation Office, 435-259-4351
Just hours after major repairs to the White Rim Road were completed last weekend, heavy rains washed out sections of the road around Upheaval Canyon.
At this time, the road remains closed from the southern base of Hardscrabble Hill to the park boundary, making a complete White Rim loop impossible. The Hardscrabble, Labyrinth and Taylor campsites are not accessible.
This closure applies to motorized vehicles only. Bicycles and pedestrians may complete the full White Rim loop.
When will the road open?
Maintenance crews hope to open the road this week (weather permitting).
What does this mean for my White Rim trip?
Until the road can be repaired, all trips on the White Rim road will have to enter and exit on the east side. The campsites at Hardscrabble, Labyrinth, and Taylor Canyon will remain closed.
