Juniper Fire Order Expires

Area roads and trails may have rocks and debris

Payson, Arizona, July 29, 2016—For Immediate Release. The Juniper Fire Public Safety Closure Order implemented on June 13, 2016, during firefighting operations in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness, south of Young, Arizona, will expire on July 31, 2016.

Effective Monday, August 1, 2016, the wilderness area and Forest Service roads leading into and around the wilderness will reopen to the public. Use caution when traveling or hiking in the area, and expect rocks and debris on roads because of the fire and thunderstorms. Trail crews are working in the Juniper Fire area to stabilize the main trails and reduce hazards to the public. The Workman Creek (FR487) and Reynolds Creek roads (FR410) have been cleared, but thunderstorm activity may dislodge rocks and other debris. The Cherry Creek Road (FR203), on the east side of the Sierra Ancha Wilderness, may be impassable to passenger vehicles because of large boulders washing down onto the road after being dislodged by thunderstorms.
