SPRINGDALE, Utah, Nov. 19, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The Angels Landing trail in Zion National Park has reopened ahead of schedule after closing Sunday because of a rockfall in the chained section.

“Repairs on the Angels Landing trail are complete and the trail is fully open,” said a tweet from the park at 4 p.m. Tuesday. “We recommend using caution if you choose to hike the trail in the next few days because the approaching winter storm could cause challenging conditions on the strenuous hike.”

The National Park Service began work on removal of the rock on Monday, and originally anticipated the trail would be open by Friday.

Still closed due to damage and ongoing trail work are Lower Emerald Pools, Observation Point (East Rim from Weeping Rock), Hidden Canyon and Weeping Rock trail and shuttle stop #7.
