Devils Postpile National Monument Superintendent Deanna Dulen announces the trail to base of Rainbow Falls is temporarily closed in order to complete needed trail work on the popular route to the base of the waterfall. The trail to the top of Rainbow Falls remains open, and visitors have access to the two viewpoints of the waterfall.

The temporary closure of the trail is necessary for park crews to complete much needed trail maintenance and mitigate rockfall hazards. The closure is expected to last throughout the season. 

Trail work is being performed by Devils Postpile staff, with assistance from trail crews from Joshua Tree National Park, Yosemite National Park, and the American Conservation Experience.
