Flagstaff AZ (February 20, 2013) – A trailhead and Forest Service road will be closed temporarily, beginning Monday, for reasons of public safety while maintenance is performed.
Courthouse Vista trailhead closure
The Courthouse Vista trailhead in the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest will be closed beginning Monday through March 1 for maintenance.
Work on the connector trail from the Courthouse Vista trailhead between the intersection of the Phone Trail and the Bell Rock Pathway will require heavy equipment at times, so will be closed for public safety.
Visitors who wish to access Bell Rock may still do so via the Phone Trail from Courthouse Vista trailhead or the Bell Rock Pathway from the Bell Rock Vista trailhead.
