Access to Zion Narrows Trail to Remain Open to Public

An agreement has been extended to maintain public access until March 31, 2019

Springdale, UtahThe Trust for Public Land and Washington County today announced that an agreement has been extended to allow the Zion Narrows Trail to remain open until March 31, 2019. The popular trail crosses Simon Gulch, a private property, before it enters Zion National Park. Currently, the Bulloch family is generously granting access to visitors crossing through their property on the trail. Washington County and The Trust for Public Land, along with the Bulloch family, Utah Department of Natural Resources, Forestry Division, the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service have been working for several years to provide permanent public access to this iconic wilderness experience. All partners continue to work in good faith to ensure a fair and permanent solution for public access to the Zion Narrows Trail.

Washington County Commission Chair, Dean Cox expressed, “Washington County is delighted that the Zion Narrows Trail can remain open for public use and appreciates the Bulloch family working with Washington County, The Trust For Public Land, the National Park Service, and U.S. Forest Service in a collaborative manner to ensure the beauty of the trail can continue to be seen and enjoyed by all.”

“Visiting the Zion Narrows Trail is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we’re proud to be working to ensure that the trail is permanently accessible to the public,” said Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land, “The Bulloch family is committed to ensuring that visitors continue to be able to enjoy this special place, and we look forward to working with them and the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service and Washington County.”

Zion National Park is the third most visited national park in the country and The Trust for Public Land has a long history of working to protect the park. The Trust for Public Land was responsible in 2013 for the protection of Tabernacle Dome which was a private inholding in the park. That same year, the organization protected the 300-acre Chamberlin Ranch, a private property outside the park that contains the trailhead for the Zion Narrows Trail. Earlier this year, The Trust for Public Land helped protect a 35-acre property within the park, known as Firepit Knoll, in partnership with The National Park Foundation.
