Rockslide Closes Weeping Rock Trail in Zion Park

Note: The National Park Sevice provided the info below, about closure of the Weeping Rock Trail in Zion National Park.

Date: September 3, 2009

The popular Weeping Rock Trail in Zion National Park was closed Wednesday, September 2, due to a rockslide that covered a 50 foot section of the trail. At approximately 10:30 a.m. the large rockslide covered a section of the trail on the approach to Weeping Rock. There were no reported injuries.

For safety reasons, the trail will remain closed until the slide stops moving, the large boulders and debris removed, and the trail repaired. It is anticipated that the trail will remain closed at least through Labor Day weekend. The Observation Point and Hidden Canyon Trails can still be accessed from the Weeping Rock shuttle stop. All other trails in the park are open.
