Yosemite Hiking Trail Closed Indefinitely Due to Rockslide

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK–Yosemite officials have announced that on April 15, a large rockfall occurred from the slope above the John Muir Trail. The rockfall happened between Clark Point and the top of Nevada Fall, sending hundreds of boulders onto the trail. In the current state of the trail, boulders, trees, and other debris, spanning approximately 1,000 feet, obstruct the trail.

The trail will require significant repair, including drilling and blasting large boulders. Geologists are now assessing the potential for additional rockfalls. The trail, already closed for the winter season, will be closed for at least several more weeks. It is currently unknown when the trail will reopen.

Gates are closed across the John Muir Trail at Clark Point and near the top of Nevada Fall. For your safety, please do not enter the closed section of the trail.
