About Grand Canyon National Park - North Rim Less visited than the South Rim, the North Rim is not as extensively developed. The views from the North and South rims differ considerably. Observers at Bright Angel Point on the North Rim can see the San Francisco Peaks, which are 80 miles south of the South Rim.
From Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim, it is 215 miles to Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge via SR 64 to Cameron, US 89 to its junction with US 89A at Bitter Springs, US 89A to Jacob Lake and scenic SR 67 to the North Rim Entrance Station. The 5-hour drive passes through the Navajo Nation Reservation, the Painted Desert and Kaibab National Forest.
A road runs 22 miles southeast from the Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge road to Point Imperial, Vista Encantada and Cape Royal. NOTE: The road to Point Imperial and Cape Royal was damaged by the winter weather; phone ahead to confirm its status. Point Imperial, at 8,803 feet, is the highest point on the canyon rim. These points all afford splendid views. Reservations for the North Rim Campground can be made up to 6 months in advance by phoning Reserve America at (877) 444-6777.
