Posted: Updated:

The Santa Catalina Ranger District will close and lock gates on seasonal roads and day use sites in the upper elevations of Mt. Lemmon on December 15. The roads will remain open to hikers, cross country skiers, bicyclists and other non-motorized users through the winter, and will reopen to traffic on March 1.

Roads affected by the closure are Lower and Upper Oracle Control Road, Bigelow Road, Incinerator Ridge Road, and the Organizational Ridge Road. The Lemmon Rock Road to the top of Mt. Lemmon above Ski Valley is already closed due to ice, and will remain closed until March 1.
