BRYCE, Utah – Bryce Canyon National Park will increase recreational access and reopen parts of the park, according to a release from the National Park Service.
Park officials said the main park road, trails within the Bryce Amphitheater and all viewpoints to Rainbow Road will reopen on Wednesday, May 6.
The park’s visitor center, fee booths, campgrounds, concessions and the Mossy Cave parking and trail area will remain closed.
The only open restrooms in the park will be at Sunset Point, officials said.
“The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers and partners continues to be paramount,” the release said. “At Bryce Canyon, our operational approach will be to regularly monitor each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance.
“We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public and workspaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners and volunteers. While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited.”
All campground reservations have been canceled through May and were in the process of being refunded, officials said.
