Trail closure in effect for Lynx Lake area

Prohibitions along the John’s Tank Trail began Dec. 1 and will be enforced on the Prescott National Forest east of Lynx Lake. These prohibitions will protect the nesting bald eagles from the potential disturbance from human presence during the nesting season.

While the John’s Tank Trail #94 is closed to all uses, the Lynx Lake Shore Trail #311 and Salida Gulch Trail #95 will remain open. This closure will remain in effect seasonally each year from Dec. 1 through June 30.

These prohibitions apply to the approximately 1-mile stretch of the John’s Tank Trail that is east of Lynx Lake and connects the Lynx Lake Shore Trail to the Salida Gulch Trail. The prohibitions will also be enforced north and south of the trail between Lynx Lake and the Salida Gulch Trail. A map of the closure area will be posted at all trailheads accessing the area and well as on the Prescott National Forest website and the Bradshaw Ranger District office. Trail loop opportunities in other areas can be found on the adjacent Highlands Center for Natural History just north of Lynx Lake.

For more information, call the Bradshaw Ranger District at 928-443-8000 or visit for a copy of the Closure Order Number 03-09-03-23-00 and associated map.
