Sedona AZ (April 15, 2014) – The Midgley Bridge Trailhead and parking area will be temporarily closed for construction activity from Monday, April 21st – Friday, May 2nd. A fenced enclosure will prohibit public access from 89A to the parking area in an effort to reduce risk and exposure to construction activities. There will be no access to Wilson Canyon and Wilson Mountain Trails from Midgley Bridge.
During this closure, an accessible toilet will be 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.
