The official CNF closure order was signed on 9/23/16 and remains in force until rescinded or until October 23, 2016, whichever event occurs first. I appears to me that the closure area has now been extended South to now border FR300 between FR139 and FR95. This now includes and closes driving/hiking entrance down perimeter road FR398 and unfortunately now cancels my planned Oct 4th Big Tooth Maple Autumn :FG: day hike into Upper West Bear Canyon http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=16685 . Let's hope that the planned burning of these 5,000 acres DOES NOT include the large stands of old growth Big Tooth Maple that reside in this West Bear Canyon drainage section.chumley wrote:The ignitions are planned to begin Monday 9/26 after allowing the forest to dry out after recent rain.
