Watch Massive Rockfall in Zion that Injured Three

The rockfall occurred on Cable Mountain above the East Rim Trail

There’s been a lot of rockfall this year, from the Bugaboos to Squamish to Yosemite and now we can add Zion National Park to the list. Three people were injured, including one who was transported to a hospital.

“A substantial piece of rock broke off Cable Mountain around 3,000 feet above Weeping Rock,” the park said in a statement. The rockfall felled trees and showered tourists with smaller rocks and branches. The rock struck the East Rim Trail, which had been previously closed.
