SPRINGDALE, UT – Zion National Park’s Hidden Canyon Trail will be closed on June 5, 2017 for trail maintenance.
The Hidden Canyon Trail, first built in 1928, allows visitors to reach a “hanging canyon” between Cable Mountain and the Great White Throne. The 2.5 mile trail includes several retaining walls damaged over the years by flash floods, and natural seeps. Over the past two years, Park trail crews have been fixing these walls. This will be the third and final closure of Hidden Canyon to complete the project.
The funding for this project comes from Park entrance fees, known as the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Funding Program.
