SPRINGDALE, UT - The park received reports of a rockfall late Saturday afternoon, November 16, on the chains section of the Angels Landing Trail. No one was injured or trapped. As a precaution, park officials closed the entirety of the trail, from Scout Lookout to Angels Landing.

The trail will be assessed by Zion National Park's trail crew on Sunday morning to determine what impacts the rockfall had on the trail and what steps need to be taken to reopen Angels Landing. The park urges visitors to comply with the closure to ensure their safety and to allow park officials to focus on the assessment and repairs.
