Thanks to a grant from Arizona State Parks, work has commenced to naturalize the first 1/8 mile of the Butcher Jones Trail which follows the contour of Saguaro Lake. The trail is being naturalized by removing pavement, railings, benches, interpretive signs and a small foot bridge. The Trail will be closed intermittently on days the work is being done. There is a combination of volunteers and contractors who will be completing the work, so closures will be intermittent. The construction should be completed by the end of June. Once construction is complete the trail be a natural surface similar to other hiking trails around the area.
