With Spring Break comes a perennial increase to park visitation. Facilities are beginning to reopen, hours are extending, and modified shuttle service will soon resume to best serve our visitors.
Please note that in order to protect the health of those who live, work, and visit national parks and National Park Service (NPS) facilities, face masks are now required in all park buildings and facilities, including the Visitor Center, park restrooms, shuttles, and concessioner buildings. Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, such as narrow or busy trails and all overlooks.
Currently the park Visitor Center and Bookstore is open every day from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Hours will be extended to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 14th and then to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 9th. Visitor Center capacity continues to be limited with short wait times during peak hours, and while the Visitor Center museum is open, the park theater remains closed. Visitors can also support the park and shop online by visiting www.brycecanyon.org.
As park roads begin to see more traffic, the Bryce Canyon Shuttle will begin service on Friday, April 2nd. Riding the shuttle bus is free but requires payment of the park’s entrance fee. Shuttles arrive every 10 to 15 minutes and will run from April 2nd through October 17th beginning at 8:00 a.m. daily. Shuttles run until the last bus leaves the park at 6:15 p.m. with extended hours to 8:10 p.m. from May 21st through September 26th. Shuttle capacity will be limited and social distancing between groups encouraged. All passengers will be required to wear a mask, and free masks will be available. Due to public health concerns, the 3-hour Rainbow Point bus tour is not scheduled to resume at this time. A reminder that
