Rockslide in Rocky Mountain National Park strikes on Hallett Peak.

A rockslide occurred in Rocky Mountain National Park on the south side of Hallett Peak.

The slide happened at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to park officials. No injuries were reported.

Park officials described the slide as a “large rockfall event,” which sent sliding rock into the Upper Chaos Canyon, a popular hiking and climbing area at about 10,000-feet elevation.

Visitors to the park should avoid the area as a follow-up slide is possible.

“Visitors planning to recreate in Upper Chaos Canyon or on the south slopes of Hallett Peak are advised to avoid traveling in the area,” park officials said. “It will take some time for the slope to stabilize and there is a significant possibility that additional rockfall may occur at any time.”
