Rockslide Closes Weeping Rock Trail
Contact: Ron Terry, 435-772-0160
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 and the large boulders and debris removed. Park managers must wait for the active area to stop sliding before clearing and reopening the trail. At this time, the Weeping Rock trail remains closed indefinitely.
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.
