Toilet installed at Midgley Bridge Trailhead
The Midgley Bridge Trailhead will reopen Friday, May 2, after a two-week closure for construction activity. A fenced enclosure prohibits public access from Route 89A to the parking area in an effort to reduce risk. During the closure, there is no access to Wilson Canyon and Wilson Mountain Trails from Midgley Bridge.
An accessible toilet is being installed and an accessible path will be built from the parking lot to the restroom. As there was no toilet previously at the trailhead, this addition should assist in reducing pollutants from reaching the Oak Creek Watershed. This work is possible through a grant received from the Oak Creek Watershed Council, administered by Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's water quality improvement grant program.
Plan accordingly during this time period if your recreation includes this area. For more information concerning this project, please contact the Red Rock Ranger District at (928) 203-2900.
