SOUTH RIM SNOW CONDITIONS


Updated April 5, 2021

SOUTH RIM DRIVE
Large stretches of the road are still snow and ice-covered. Cross-country skiing is no longer possible. The road is open to foot traffic (pets and bicycles prohibited). Park snowpack is 10".

NON-GROOMED SNOWSHOEING
Snowshoeing is no longer practical. Hikers should expect a mix of snow, mud and ice on South Rim Trails. Rim Rock Trail has the clearest conditions and Oak Flat Loop remains covered with packed snow and ice (traction devices highly recommended). Trekking poles or a walking stick are good to take along too. Park snowpack is 10".
