The closure order for Mt. Lemmon and Sabino Canyon is still in effect for public safety. The closure order applies to recreation residence cabins in Greater Soldier Camp and Willow Canyon on the Coronado National Forest. This order was issued due to the hazards in the burn scar and the increased possibility of flooding downstream and of sediment and debris runoff after the Bighorn Fire.
We encourage the public to remain vigilant and aware of weather conditions in the local area. Federal and local agencies are taking steps to reduce the risks to life and safety downstream from the burned area. However, we also encourage residents in the area to develop individual plans to protect themselves and their property, and to remain aware of flashflood warnings issues
