Recent storm activity has created unsafe road conditions on Forest Road 708, also known as Fossil Creek Road. On Tuesday, Tonto National Forest officials announced they were closing a section of the road, possibly until April 1.
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This closure is in place until rescinded by another order or on April 1, whichever comes first.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 Web site at www.fs.usda.gov/Tonto.
