Current Weather Conditions

NOAA provides a current weather forecast for Bryce Canyon and surrounding areas. Our weather page can provide a good idea of what the weather might be like at various times of year.

When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!
Lightning is a year-round possibility, but it's most common (and most dangerous!) during summer thunderstorms in July and August.

Road, Campground, and Trail Conditions

Winter Road and Trail Conditions
Snow and ice are currently present throughout the park along roads, trails, and walkways. Drive with extra caution when visiting, as patches of ice are likely. Use of traction devices is highly recommended for those planning to hike.

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. Wall Street and the Rim Trail from Bryce Point to Inspiration Point have closed for the winter season. All other front country trails remain open. Fairyland Point Road and Paria View Roads have closed to allow for skiing and other winter activities. The park posts updates on the scenic drive to both its Twitter and Facebook pages.

Sheep Creek Backcountry Site Closed
Due to bear activity, the Sheep Creek campsite is closed to overnight use until further notice.

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.


Construction Projects

Bryce Canyon Lodge Parking Lot Construction
Redesign of the Bryce Canyon Lodge parking lot scheduled to continue through the spring of 2020. Alternate parking arrangements will be available during closures.
