Monument Canyon Trail near the trailhead is under construction and will be closed during workdays and some weekends due to hazardous hiking conditions and overhead danger. The trail will be closed 0.2 miles from the upper trailhead, at the intersection of Monument Canyon and Coke Ovens Trails. Visitors can continue to use the Coke Ovens Trail but cannot proceed further down into Monument Canyon. The trail will be closed 5.5 miles up canyon from the lower trailhead. The Monument Canyon / Wedding Canyon Loop will remain open. Signs will be posted at both trailheads, near the intersection of Monument/Wedding Canyon Trails, and at both of the closures.
