ST. GEORGE — Zion National Park officials have closed one of their most widely known trails after a rockfall late Saturday afternoon.
Park officials received reports that a rockfall occurred on the chains section of the Angels Landing trail. In order to ensure the safety of park visitors, officials closed the trail from Scout Lookout to Angels Landing.
National Park Service officials are expecting to clear the rock Monday and estimate the trail will re-open Friday. The park is asking visitors to respect the closure to ensure their safety and allow park officials to work on any necessary repairs.
No one was injured or trapped during the rockfall.
