Zion National Park is closing the Angels Landing Trail

The Angels Landing Trail in Zion National Park remains closed Monday morning due to damage to the chain of the popular and treacherous climb.

Park staff is working to fix the damage that has not been stated. The chain sections cover steep and dangerous parts of the trail – hikers hold on to avoid falls. At least 13 people have died hiking the trail since 2000.

Zion did not specify when the trail is expected to reopen.

The park introduced a reservation system for the hike in January, along with a lottery to win the reservations. The Angels Landing Trail averages more than 1,200 hikers per day, with more than 2,000 hikers per day during the summer months.
