And this from a guy named "District Ranger" from the Utah forum

Canyonlands National Park White Rim
Hello:

The White Rim road and the Mineral Switchbacks sustained flood damage last year and have been impassable since. Work on the Mineral Switchbacks is estimated to be completed and the switchbacks reopened on March 29th 2011.

The White Rim is also projected to be opened simultaneously with the opening of the Mineral Switchbacks, however road work will continue on the White Rim well into the spring season.

During the coming spring season, we will be requiring day users to obtain permits and to comply with the same group size limits as overnight users do in order to avoid damage to natural and cultural resources along the road, improve public safety, and avoid conflict among user groups.

Beginning March 1, 2011 and continuing through May 31, 2011, the following will apply to day users on the White Rim, Shafer Trail, and Potash roads within Canyonlands:

Group size may not exceed:
3 motor vehicles (including motorcycles)
15 bicycles (bicycle groups may not exceed 15 riders)
15 people total

Each group must obtain a Day Use Permit:
Permits are free and unlimited
Day Use Permits will normally be issued for use of the "Day Use Zone" which includes the White Rim Road south to Musselman Arch, the Shafer Trail, and the Potash Road within the park.
Permits will be issued for other White Rim day use destinations if requested by the permittee.
Permits will be available at the Arches Visitor Center, the ISKY Visitor Center, the SEUG office, the MIC, and at most Jeep rental businesses in Moab

These measures will remain in place through May 31, 2011.

The previous regulations applicable to travel on the White Rim will not change. For example:

Motorcycles must be street legal: sound limit is 80 decibels
Operation of ATVs/OHVs is prohibited within Canyonlands, Arches, Hovenweep, and Natural Bridges
Pets are not allowed on the White Rim Road, even in a vehicle. However, pets may accompany day user groups travelling by motor vehicle on the Potash and Shafer roads

Please feel free to contact me or the Southeast Utah Goup at 435 259 4351

Nasty, bureaucratic, freedom hating government wreckulations which I heartily support.
