The popular Angels Landing trail in Zion National Park will be briefly closed next week for trail repairs, the Utah park announced Friday.
The park trail, located about 160 miles northeast of Las Vegas, will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday, and is expected to reopen at 6 a.m. Thursday, the park said in a news release. The closure will allow crews to replace multiple posts that support the chain sections on the trail.
Angels Landing climbs about 1,500 feet in elevation and features long, steep drop-offs, according to the park’s website. Hikers on portions of the trail can hold onto chains fastened into the rock.
Access to the Scout Lookout and West Rim Trail will remain open during the trail repairs, the park said.
