There will be a seasonal reduction in services at some developed recreation sites on the Mesa Ranger District, October 15 - April 15.
The reduction in services includes no vehicle access, trash pick-up, no available toilets, and no drinking water where water was previously provided.
“The reduction in services will allow the recreation staff to consolidate use and more efficiently manage recreation on the district as visitation drops in the fall and winter” stated Gary Hanna, Mesa District Ranger.
In 2006 - the year after the Cave Creek Complex fire - the floods roared through here and ripped out most of the CCC work. Downcreek there was flood debris 10 to 12 feet up in the trees.Outdoor Lover wrote:@beterarcher
I can't believe that they let such a popular area like that go to waste. It is apparent from the Creekbed that they did have some kind of major flooding event in the last couple of years. The whole area is a mess with alot of debris, both natural and man made in the Creek. What an absolute waste of a beautiful area....
