A rockfall occurred just east of Wapama Falls on the North side of Hetch Hetchy Reservoir on March 31st, covering approximately 600 ft of the Wapama Falls trail.  The falls can still be reached from the west, but the trail is closed just east of the falls.  The National Park Service does not currently have an estimated date for reopening the closed section of trail.
