Zion Park Trails Reopen After Fire

The popular Subway route in Zion National Park is now open, after having been closed in late June and early July because a wildfire threatened the area. It reopened on July 7.

All park roads are now open to the public. The following drainages, routes and trails are still completely closed until further notice: Grapevine, Coalpits Wash, Scoggins Wash, Huber Wash, Chinle Trail and Dalton Wash.

Zion Canyon, the most popular area in the park, was never threatened by the fire and remained open through the period. The Narrows, Angels Landing and other popular hikes were not affected.

A group from Utah.com hiked the Narrows recently and had a great trip. We made this video clip to showcase the hike (Flash video, 5941K).
