  • Island Trail Partial Closures

    Sections of the Island Trail are undergoing needed repairs creating partial closures. Please call ahead 928-526-3367 for the latest conditions.


The visitor center and its restrooms are accessible.

Trail accessibility is limited because of terrain. No wheelchairs or strollers on the Island Trail, due to steep grades and many steps. The Rim Trail is accessible to the first overlook; beyond that point, it does not fully meet accessibility standards, but may be possible with assistance.

Please contact the park for specific information to meet your needs.
