Arizona Trail Through Santa Catalina Mountains Reopens After 10-Month Fire Closure

Today, the Coronado National Forest rescinded the Fire Closure Order for the portion of the Arizona National Scenic Trail that has been in place since the Bighorn Fire started in June, 2020. Thanks to Arizona Trail Association staff, stewards and volunteers, as well as the crews at Arizona Conservation Corps and staff from the Santa Catalina Ranger District, the AZT is now open through the Pusch Ridge Wilderness (Passage 11)…just in time for thru-hiking season!
