Air Quality Webcam
The park maintains an air quality monitoring station at the southern end of the park near Yovimpa Point.
Road, Campground, and Trail Conditions
Both roads and trails tend to be icy in winter. The park strongly recommends traction devices for walking around the park. Drivers should observe all posted speed limits; to protect native flora and fauna, the park places cinders on roads but does not use salt. Ice may exist on roadways.
Winter Road and Trail Closures (See Alerts)
Following winter storms, the 18-mile southern scenic drive may close beyond the Bryce Amphitheater at Mile 3 to allow crews to clear the road. The Wall Street side of the Navajo Loop and Bryce Point Peekaboo Loop Connecting Trail are currently closed. All other front country trails remain open.
Sheep Creek and Corral Hollow Backcountry Sites Closed
Due to bear activity, the Sheep Creek campsite is closed to overnight use until further notice. Corral Hollow is temporarily closed.
Backcountry Under-the-Rim Trail Damage and Hiker Advisory
Due to deteriorating trail conditions, those hiking the Under-the-Rim trail must understand that they do so at their own risk. Strong wayfinding skills are a must, and responses to emergency situations may be difficult and delayed. The Agua Canyon Connecting Trail remains closed due to rockfall.
Starting Monday, April 5th, the Utah Department of Transportation will begin constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of S.R. 12 and S.R. 63 in Bryce Canyon City. The project is part of UDOT's effort to improve driver safety through reduced speeds, traffic calming, improved visibility, and navigation improvements.
Schedule: Begin Date: April 5th, 2021
Approx. Completion Date: Late September 2021
Work Hours: 7am - Sunset (Mon-Fri)
More Information: UDOT SR-12 Webpage
*Schedules are subject to change due to weather and materials available.
By Tuesday, April 27th, simultaneous work will begin repaving from the intersection of S.R 12 and S.R 63 and continue along S.R. 12 to the city of Henrieville. Stay tuned for additional details in these weekly construction updates as the repaving work approaches.
Expected Traffic Impacts:
Traffic controls will be in place with appropriate signage, flaggers and rumble strips to alert approaching drivers. Contractors will maintain access to nearby business. See image below demonstrating what drivers can expect.
Weekly Work Progress:
This project is just beginning. In future construction updates, details will be provided.
During construction, drivers should plan for single-lane closures with alternating traffic and delays of up to 15 minutes during daylight hours (8 a.m. - 7 p.m.) Monday through Thursday. Work on Friday and at night will be done as needed. In addition, residents and businesses can expect increased noise, dust and vibration during construction.
