SPRINGDALE, Utah, July 3, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A trail in Zion National Park remains closed Tuesday after a rockfall late Monday afternoon.

The rockfall came down on Hidden Canyon Trail in the section in which hikers are required to hold onto chains, covering approximately 45 feet of trail in sand, park spokeswoman Aly Baltrus said in a news release.

There were no injuries as a result of the rockfall, the statement said.

Hidden Canyon Trail will remain closed until the trail and the chains can be assessed and the trail cleared; at least through the end of Tuesday.

The trail was built in 1928 and leads from East Rim Trail into the side ravine between Cable Mountain and the north wall of the Great White Throne, officials said.

All other trails are open, the news release said.
