In casting about for hiking options with the National Forests closed, I found a description of "Agua Fria River Canyon" in Canyoneering Arizona. It lists the hike as being located in the Prescott National Forest, but if I'm not mistaken, its actually in the Agua Fria National Monument that was created a few years ago by President Clinton. The website for the Monument makes no mention of closures. This looks like a fairly good hike, and is accessible from Phoenix, so I'd like to do it this Sunday maybe. A few questions:
1. Does anyone know if you can park on Badger Spring road? Has this road been closed off due to the recent fire restrictions?
2. Has anyone done this hike? Is it worthwhile?
Thanks in advance,
