Good news coming from the Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests… the Mt. Baldy trails, including West Baldy, East Baldy and Baldy Crossover, are once again open for hiker and equestrian use. While the trails are back in business, downed trees across the trail at multiple locations may present difficulties for hikers as well as horses. Another friendly FYI, as with all wilderness trails, no mountain bikes or motorized vehicles are allowed.
The Wallow Fire, which burned for over 40 days and charred more than 538,000 acres of land, was human caused and still under investigation.
