Tibble Fork is not open year round due to the heavy snow fall during the winter that can close canyon roads. Be sure to check if the (Tibble Fork gate)[] is open for visitors.

The sun goes down slightly earlier in the canyon so we recommend planning your shoot an hour earlier than you normally would to ensure you have enough light.
