STOP BY THE WELCOME CENTERThere is no entrance fee for the park! Begin your visit at the Welcome Center to pick up a brochure, stamp your passport, browse the park store or become a Junior Ranger. Open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. During severe weather, the Welcome Center may open at a later time or be closed for the day.
VISIT THE OVERLOOKS UPON REOPENINGThe North and South Rim Drives with nine overlooks remain open all year to visit on your own. The roads are paved and accessible by vehicle (4-wheel drive is not required). The Overlooks and White House Trail are closed due to safety and law enforcement concerns.
TIME CHANGEFrom March through November, the Navajo Nation observes Mountain Daylight Savings Time when the time will be the same as Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The rest of Arizona observes Mountain Standard Time all year.
