Temporary Reroute on the Kaibab Plateau

The Jacob Ryan North prescribed burn will impact trail users on the Kaibab Plateau North passage (#42), located approximately two miles northeast of Jacob Lake. To help trail users traveling through the impacted portion of the AZT, fire managers will post firefighters at checkpoints on the northern and southern ends of the unit where the trail and the prescribed burn area intersect. Trailguards will also be available to escort individuals as necessary, and reroute maps and signage will be posted. From the south, the reroute will direct users north along FR 247 for approximately three miles, then east along FR 249C for approximately a half mile where it will intersect with the trail, at the fire's northern checkpoint.

For more information, visit this inciweb page or call the Kaibab National Forest Fire Information line at 928-635-8311.

Paving Project on the AZT within Grand Canyon National Park

A 4-mile segment of the Arizona Trail's Passage 37 (Grand Canyon-South Rim) will be subject to a major paving project over the next two months. Also known as the Tusayan Greenway Path, which connects the town of Tusayan and Grand Canyon Village, this is a popular way for hikers, runners and mountain bikers to access Grand Canyon National Park. Paving will occur between the National Park boundary (0.5 mile north of the IMAX Theater parking lot in Tusayan) and Center Road. For safety reasons, the path is now officially closed. The Park will inform the ATA when the project is near completion. Hikers are encouraged to utilize the free Grand Canyon National Park shuttle to avoid this segment; mountain bikers are encouraged to ride on the paved shoulder of Hwy 64; and equestrians are encouraged to explore the forest roads east of the highway.

The Arizona Trail Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
