July 3, 2019: Trails 61 & 62 are now open for recreational use. The Army has completed munitions cleanup in this area. Please stay on the designated routes marked by BLM – the trails are still new and are sensitive to disturbance.
Trail 56 and Trail 57 between Hennekens Ranch Road and Addington Road were reopened for recreational use on February 22, 2019.
Trail 70 (realigned) and Trail 65 (new) were opened for recreational use on April 4, 2019.
Work areas enclosed by temporary fence are currently closed. Please look out for signs for temporary road closures, as additional munitions cleanup will be scheduled on some roads this summer. Please continue to check this web page for updates.
The prescribed burn planned for Unit A was not conducted in 2018 because the required combination of weather and other factors to meet the burn prescription did not occur. The prescribed burn was postponed to a future burn season. Trails within Unit A are currently closed.
Access Corridors may be closed within the exclusion zones during work activities, but will remain open the rest of the time to allow for passage through the National Monument.
Thank you for complying with the temporary trail and road closures while the Army’s munitions cleanup is in progress. For your safety please Mind the Signs, and continue to call the Army’s information line (1-800-852-9699) with your feedback and if you have any questions. Thank you.
