ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah, June 4, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A rockfall in Zion National Park injured two visitors Sunday afternoon, officials said.

A tweet from the park Monday morning said Riverside Walk trail is closed due to “a rockfall that resulted in injuries to visitors.” The severity of those injuries is not known at this time.

Visitors may not walk any part of the paved Riverside Walk trail, the tweet said. Visitors can access the Narrows by going directly to the river from the Temple of Sinawava parking lot.

Shuttle buses will still drop off and pick up at the Temple of Sinawava, the tweet said.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
