BRYCE, UT – During the early morning hours of September 10, thousands of pounds of limestone fell to the canyon floor. Effective immediately, the Wall Street section of the Navajo Loop trail is closed. This rock fall has partially covered the trail through the canyon. Deputy Chief Ranger Wesley Baker states that “The risk of additional rock fall events triggered by this massive rock dislodging is still a major concern.” Because of this rock fall, the southern side of the Navajo Loop trail will remain closed until the risk of additional rock fall incidents are reduced. The Two Bridges side of the Navajo Loop and the Queen’s Garden trail remain open.
