Zion National Park closes trails due to storm damage

SPRINGDALE, Utah, March 31, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Zion National Park has closed a number of trails until further notice due to storm damage and rockfalls.

Park officials posted on Sunday morning that the Kayenta Trail and Upper Emerald Pools Trail are closed until further notice due to storm damage, while the Hidden Canyon Trail and Observation Point from Weeping Rock are closed due to rockfall.

“These closures are indefinite,” the tweet said. “We will update as we know more. Check our park website for lots of great trip planning info and current conditions.”

The Zion-Mount Carmel Highway is also still closed to buses and RVs. The highway was closed the evening of March 2 after heavy rains undercut the road. One lane temporarily reopened on March 12. Larger vehicles are still prohibited due to safety concerns.
