Two hikers hurt in the Zion National Park

Wednesday, June 6, 2018


zionAfter two people were hurt in a rock fall during a popular trail at the Zion National Park in Utah, the park  got closed.


One person suffered serious leg injuries in the Sunday afternoon rock fall on the trail  leading  to the iconic Narrows hike,  stated Park ranger John Marciano.



From the 1,400-foot cliff wall at the far end of the paved trail a large rock broke away that led to dislodging a shower of smaller rocks.


Further the paved Riverside Walk trail was examined  by a hazard geologist  to see when it’s safe to re-open.


The Narrows can now be reached by the visitors instead through the river at the Temple of Sinawava trail.



Superintendent Jeff Bradybaugh felt sorry for the two people hurt. He mentioned that the rock falls cannot be predicted in the parks located at about 160 miles northeast of  Las Vegas.
