Grand Canyon, AZ - April 25 through May 10, 2021, the Cedar Ridge composting toilet facility will be temporarily unavailable to hikers on the South Kaibab Trail. Hikers should use the restroom facilities at the trailhead before entering the canyon. 

Grand Canyon trail crew staff will close the Cedar Ridge composting toilet facility on the South Kaibab Trail for much needed maintenance, evacuation, and rehabilitation. The tanks must be completely evacuated to perform the necessary maintenance.
