Autumn in the Grand Canyon

No reviews, be the first!

The Grand Canyon is appealing year-round, but the main benefit of visiting during the autumn season is that summer crowds have started to dwindle—and the wettest month of the year (August) has passed, taking the thunderstorms with it.

Temperatures peak at 76, 65, and 52 degrees Fahrenheit (24, 18, and 11 degrees Celsius) on the South Rim in September, October, and November, respectively. The North Rim closes in the middle of October, but highs there are always a bit cooler.
