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

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.

Sheep Creek Connection Trail Damage
Due to heavy rains, the junction of the Under-the-Rim Trail and Sheep Creek Connector trail has been severely washed out. Hikers will need to utilize a map to navigate.
