  • Public Safety Closure Mogollon Box Day Use Area

    The Gila National Forest has issued a Temporary Area and Road Closure for the Mogollon Box Day Use Area (03-06-07-22-001) effective August 23, 2022, at 4:00 p.m.

    The purpose of this Order is to protect public safety due to flooding and debris flows that make the Mogollon Box Day Use Area inaccessible and unsafe. Large boulders and woody debris are abundant in the Day Use Area adjacent to the Gila River that can easily be transported downstream causing serious injury. This order will remain in effect through December 31, 2022 at 24:00, unless rescinded.

    Review the closure order and map for details.
