Unsafe road conditions caused by recent storm activity has prompted Tonto National Forest officials to close a section of Forest Road 708, also called Fossil Creek Road.
The closure begins at the intersection of FR 708 and FR 784, also called the Fossil Springs Trailhead Road, and extends westerly to a point just before the Waterfall Trailhead, also called the Old Flume Trail Trailhead.
This closure will be in place until rescinded by another order or on April 1, whichever comes first.
For more information on this closure, contact the Payson Ranger District at (928) 474-7930. Updates will also be provided on the forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/Tonto.
