As of Monday, April 1st, two trails have reopened for hikers in Bryce Canyon National Park.
The Fairyland Loop and the Tower Bridge Trail have both been closed due to winter conditions, but have been reopened to the public. The National Park Services warns for guests visiting the park to be aware of their surroundings while hiking, and to stay alert for continued winter weather conditions along the trails.
Some conditions that hikers should be aware of are:
- Ice along the trail
- Snow accumulations
- Loose rocks
Hikers are strongly encouraged and recommended to use hiking poles and other traction devices while accessing these trails as the snow continues to melt in Bryce Canyon National Park.
