Washout closes Rainbow Bridge National Monument

PAGE, Ariz. — Rainbow Bridge National Monument is temporarily closed
because recent heavy rains have washed out a trail next to Lake Powell.

The monument is located in southern Utah in the Glen Canyon National Recreation
area that also includes part of northern Arizona.

Officials say the monument will be closed indefinitely because of the storm
damage.

The damage includes the complete loss of 150 feet of trail between the lake
dock and the first shade structure.

Development of a temporary trail is planned for use until a new permanent trail
can be constructed.
