SPRINGDALE, Utah (ABC4 News) – The Angels Landing Trail in Zion National Park was reopened Tuesday after a rockfall over the weekend.

The trail was assessed on Sunday, November 17 following a rockfall on Saturday on the chained section of the trail.

Park officials said several unstable rocks, one the size of a refrigerator, had fallen to obstruct a particularly narrow section of the trail.

 Officials estimated the trail would be closed until at least Friday, but crews began rock removal on Monday and completed their work Tuesday afternoon ahead of a winter storm predicted to impact the park Tuesday night.

Visitors can access the strenuous, 5.4. mile roundtrip hike from Shuttle Stop 6, The Grotto.
