Access update: Huachuca Canyon CLOSED

We’ve recently received notification from Fort Huachuca’s Public Affairs Office (520-533-1850) that Huachuca Canyon has been closed in the interests of public safety in response to reports of Black Bear and Mountain Lion activity. According to Fort Huachuca’s Facebook page, a bear is reported to have “followed and charged hikers and later chuffed at cyclists in the canyon.” A previous notice announced the reinstatement of a policy that recreational visitors to Huachuca Canyon must check in and out at the Military Police Station at 22336 Christy Avenue (520-533-3000), on the road into Huachuca Canyon.

It is currently unclear how long this this closure will last and whether it will affect SABO’s Huachuca Canyon field trip on May 2, but we will notify registered participants as soon as we know more. Thanks for your patience.
