Massive Rock Fall Closes Yosemite Trail

National Park Service

A massive rock fall shut down Rancheria Falls Trail.

A popular hiking trail in Yosemite National Park was shut down March 31, thanks to 16,000 tons of rock falling on it, according to reports.

The massive rockfall along Rancheria Falls Trail shut it down east of the Wapama Falls bridge, the Los Angeles Times reported.

No injuries were reported, though the fall did kick up a massive amount of dust along the trail, which rings Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.
