Private owner revokes access across land, forcing Zion NP to stop issuing permits for popular hike

If there's one iconic backcountry trip at Zion National Park in Utah that lures visitors from around the world, it's the 16-mile hike through the Zion Narrows. On Tuesday, however, that trek was put out of reach when a private landowner closed his property as an access point to The Narrows.


"Effective immediately, Zion National Park has stopped issuing Wilderness permits to hike the Zion Narrows from North to South (“top-down”)," park staff said. "This includes the 16-mile one-way day hike and all overnight use."
