Angels Landing Trail to Remain Closed until Friday

The Angels Landing Trail was assessed on Sunday, November 17, 2019, following a rockfall late on Saturday. The National Park Service will be working to remove the rock beginning Monday and anticipate the trail will reopen by Friday, November 22. Climbing closures remain in effect below the rockfall zone and closures in the vicinity of Big Bend will be strictly enforced while work is being completed due to the hazardous conditions falling rock may cause. The park urges visitors to comply with the closures to ensure their safety and to allow park officials to focus on the necessary repairs.

As a precaution, park officials closed the entirety of the trail, from Scout Lookout to Angels Landing. The trail will be assessed by Zion National Park’s trail crew on Sunday morning to determine what impacts the rockfall had on the trail and what steps need to be taken to reopen Angels Landing. The park urges visitors to comply with the closure to ensure their safety and to allow park officials to focus on the assessment and repairs.

California Condor Chick #1000 Fledges at Zion National Park

On September 25, 2019, chick #1000 took its first flight from its nest cave in Zion National Park, becoming the first wild-hatched chick to successfully fledge within Zion National Park since recovery efforts began in the late 1990’s and likely the first in Zion in over one hundred years. 1K” is also known as Zion’s Centennial Chick since 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of Zion National Park. Two park visitors witnessed the chick’s first flight and immediately reported the news to National Park Service staff who confirmed the good news. Currently 96 condors are flying free in northern Arizona and southern Utah thanks to the tireless efforts of numerous non-profit organizations, zoos, and federal, state, and tribal agencies that form the Southwest Condor Working Group and to the voluntary efforts of hunters participating in Arizona and Utah’s lead ammunition reduction programs.
