Ikes Fire Wildfire
Closures – 10/1/2019

In order to provide for public and firefighter safety, the Kaibab National Forest expanded the area closure on the North Kaibab Ranger District in the vicinity of the Rainbow Rim. The Rainbow Rim Trail and the viewpoints from Parissawampitts Point to Stina Point are temporarily closed. Crazy Jug Point north of Parissawampitts is open.

For hikers and mountain bikers, the Arizona National Scenic Trail is an alternative recreational opportunity while the Rainbow Rim Trail is closed. The Arizona National Scenic Trail is accessible from many points along Highway 67 and offers a variety of scenery, including views into the Grand Canyon.

Additional details are included in the Ikes Fire Closure Order and Map.
