Grand Canyon National Park is scheduling the seasonal closings of visitor services on the North Rim.

Park officials say most North Rim visitor services will close Oct. 16, with breakfast that day being the last meal served at Grand Canyon Lodge.

The North Rim will remain open to visitors until closing on Dec. 1 or an earlier closing of State Route 67 due to snow.

After Oct. 16 and until Oct. 24, the North Rim Visitor Center will be staffed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily.

North Rim campground sites are available by reservation through Oct. 31. The campground then reverts to primitive use with backcountry reservations required over the winter.

The Grand Canyon Lodge gift shop will remain open daily until Dec. 1.
