The Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali Coast of Kauai was closed Friday after a helicopter accident at Kalalau Beach Thursday afternoon.

The pilot and two passengers aboard the helicopter were not seriously injured.

The flight was not a sight-seeing trip, but rather was occupied by officials from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

Those with camping permits for Kalalau Beach are being notified of the closure.
