Recreation officials in the Verde Ranger District announced this past week the closure of Forest Road 104 at the entrance to the Mingus Recreation Area (at the junction with Forest Road 104E) for the season. Restroom and trash services have ceased and will commence again May 1, 2016, when FR 104 reopens.
The public can access Mingus Lake on foot; they are asked not to block gates in the area and to pack out what they pack in. At this time the segment of FR104 to FR413 accessed at Highway 89A will remain open unless heavy snow accumulation warrants its closure for public safety.
