I want to Hike the West Rim Trail in May so I hope the TH at Lava Point isn't snowed in.one of the retaining walls have failed and the highway is severely undermined. With all the trail closures due to active landslides and rockfalls from last year, now additional trails are closed like everything on the East side plus Observation Point which can't get accessed from any point within the park unless you go all the way around via Kanab and highway 89. Zion has received 5x the amount of rain it had last year
@Yvonne sounds like your local. Can I offline you towards the end of the month on road conditions for kolob terrace? I know NPS updates on their website but they are not always timely. I was heading out there last year and they said the road was closed at Maloney hill only to find it clear and dry past wildcat.May should be fine, even with all the snow we had. It's already melting pretty fast
I live in Hurricane and am in Zion a lot. Go ahead and shoot me a message when you're getting close to your trip@Yvonne sounds like your local.

so far this year. Last year Zion had 2.4 inches last year, now it's almost 11 inches.Do you mean that so far this year, the amount of rain they've gotten is already 5x what they got all of last year?? Either way, that's good to hear, aside from the infrastructure problems going on.
I wonder how they'll enforce the 9 to 5? I'm interested in going back to gifford and/or separation.there is a small "no parking pullout "on the left when you come from East Entrance just before the parking to the right for Canyon Overlook.
It's easy to turn around there.
Repairs will take a while. They had Federal Highways in today and some Engineering Geologists so they can figure out what to do.
That spot is a really awful spot and has always rock falls and active slides due to the soil present and the crumbling Moenave Sandstone underneath the Kayenta in that area.
