Travel Tips, What's New — By julietrevelyan on May 31, 2011 at 9:07 pm

If you plan to check out the famous White Rim Road in Canyonlands National Park, you’ll need to wait until the water is down. Due to extremely high spring run-off, the popular road is closed to all traffic; this includes foot, bicycle, and motorized vehicles. The water run-off also affects river trips; if you have a scheduled float, check in with the guide service taking you to see how it might specifically impact your trip through Canyonlands.

To keep an eye on water levels, check out the USGS Real Time Water Data site or the National Weather Service page of similar information.
