Angels Landing closes temporarily after rock slide

Zion National Park officials have closed Angels Landing, one of their most known trails, due to a rockfall Saturday afternoon.

The rockfall occurred near the chains section on the trail that park officials received reports on.

During the rockfall, no one was trapped or injured. 

Park officials closed the trail from Scout Lookout to Angels Landing to keep park visitors safe. 

National Park Service officials are trying to re-open the trail by Friday, November 22nd and hope to have the rocks cleared by Monday, November 18th.

Park officials apologize to all their visitors but ask that those visiting the park respect the closure of Angels Landing to make sure that they are kept safe and help allow park officials access the trail as they work to clear the damage.

Additional Trail Closures

Visitors should remember that the Lower Emerald Pools trail has also been closed due to expected repairs and is anticipated it will reopen in Spring of 2020.

In addition to the Lower Emerald Pools, the Weeping Rock Trail, Hidden Canyon Trail, and Observation Point Trail (East Rim from Weeping Rock) still remain closed due to rockfall damage.
