A stretch of the John Muir Trail in Yosemite National Park has been covered by a rockfall that has covered about 1,000 feet of trail and which will take weeks to clear.

The rockfall came down shortly berfore midnight on April 15, covering the trail between Clark Point and the top of Nevada Fall with hundreds of boulders, trees, and other debris.

The trail will require significant repair, including drilling and blasting of large boulders, according to park staff. Geologists were assessing the potential for additional rockfalls.

The trail, which was already closed for the winter season, will be closed for at least several more weeks, the staff said.

Gates are closed across the John Muir Trail at Clark Point and near the top of Nevada Fall. Park officials ask that you not enter the closed section of the trail.

It will take weeks to remove the boulders and open the section of trail/NPS
