SPRINGDALE, Washington County — The Zion National Park trail crew will begin a multiyear project to rehabilitate several trails out of the Weeping Rock shuttle area during the summer. Trail work will begin in early June. From June 16 through the end of September, the Hidden Canyon Trail and portions of the East Rim and Observation Point Trails will be closed for several days each week to allow newly poured concrete to dry.
Concrete pouring will occur on Monday or Tuesday of each week, which should allow the trail to be open most weekends.
The trail crew will also repair retaining walls on the Hidden Canyon Trail beginning as early as July 7. Once the work begins, the trail will remain closed until the end of the project, which should be no later than the end of August.
Trail work is also planned for the Canyon Overlook Trail during the months of September and October, and the trail will be closed Monday through Thursday each week during construction.
Dates may change as the project gets closer and progresses. See www.nps.gov/zion for updated information.
The project is funded by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Funding Program, which uses funds collected from the park entrance and use fees to complete park maintenance projects and public service programs.
