Summers are pleasant with temperatures ranging from 50°-80°F. If you do venture down into the canyon the temperatures increase, sometimes exceeding over 100°F. The sun is powerful in the high-altitude, so wearing hats and sunscreen is highly advised. Evenings are cool around 40°-50°F and wearing light jackets or sweaters is a good idea.
Winters are cold with temperatures between 40°-50°F or lower. We recommend you bring warm clothes and prepare for icy roads and trails, potential road closures and snow.
Spring and fall at Grand Canyon can be unpredictable. Generally days are comfortably warm around 50°-60°F and the nights cooler. This time of year can have some of the best weather for hiking.
