    Midgley Bridge parking area and trailhead to be temporarily closed October 16 and October 23, 2017

    Sedona, Arizona — The parking area and trailhead next to Midgley Bridge will be temporarily closed Monday, October 16 and Monday, October 23, 2017 for infrastructure improvements and public safety. The parking area is a very popular site and heavily used by visitors and recreationists.

For more information on this or any other recreation project in the Red Rock Ranger District, please call Recreation Technician Mike Suggs at (928) 203-7532.
