Sedona News – The upper portion of Cathedral Rock Trail will temporarily close to the public for construction starting March 16.
The closure will remain in place through April 30, but could lift earlier if construction work ends sooner.
The Forest Service Red Rock Trail Crew will be reconstructing rock walls and check steps during the closure.
A Forest Closure Order has been put in place due to the inability to safely reroute hikers around the work area, which includes the trail itself and the 200 feet of land on either side.
During construction, there is a possibility of large rocks rolling downhill due to steep terrain.
The lower portion of Cathedral Rock Trail — from the trailhead to the .4-mile mark of the trail — will remain open to the public during this project.
