Flagstaff, AZ —The Schultz Fire Area Closure and Cinder Lakes Flood Area Closure have both been extended until December 31, 2010. The Schultz Fire Area Closure includes the popular fall color destinations of Lockett Meadow and Inner Basin. The Cinder Lakes Flood Area includes a southwestern corner of Cinder Hills Off-Highway Vehicle Area and national forest land east of Fernwood subdivision.
One of the greatest safety concerns within the Schultz Fire area is the hazard of dead trees falling over, which will be a safety issue for a long time. The following trails and roads are within the closure area:
* Schultz Pass Road (FR 420, north of Schultz Pass/Schultz Tank)
* Lockett Meadow Road (FR 552)
* Waterline Road (FR 146)
* Elden Springs Road (FR 556)
* Little Bear Trail
* Little Elden Trail
* Deer Hill Trail
* Inner Basin Trail
* Lockett Meadow Campground and Little Elden Springs Horse Camp
Because of drainage structures constructed to relieve flooding, the Cinder Lakes area is compromised by wet, unstable cinder surface. Public safety officials urge people to stay out of this closure area for their own safety and to avoid the need for rescue. Most of the Cinder Hills OHV area is still open and accessible through Sunset Crater National Monument/Forest Road 545. Access to the City of Flagstaff landfill is still open.
Violation of these closures is punishable by a fine of up to $5000 or imprisonment for up to 6 months, or both.
