The body was found Wednesday evening after an abandoned vehicle was reported near the Canyon Overlook trailhead, according to a news release from the park. Park officials shut down the Canyon Overlook Trail Thursday to recover the body.

The Canyon Overlook Trail is a 1-mile hike that ends at a landing above Great Arch.
