Getting There

Take Highway 92 east from Delta, Colorado or west from Highway 50 between Gunnison, Colorado and Montrose, Colorado to near Crawford, Colorado. Just south of Crawford, turn south on North Rim Road and follow signs to the North Rim section of the Park. The North Rim Road to the park is closed in the snow months which can start in fall and extend well into spring in this area so check the status before heading out!
