Tucson, AZ  For the second time this week, monsoon season storms have caused flash flooding in the Saguaro National Park’s Tucson Mountain (West) District. The rain this afternoon damaged and washed out segments of the Scenic Bajada Loop Drive, including all of Hohokam Road except the segment leading to the Sus Picnic area. Golden Gate Road was not damaged and remains open. The trailhead to the Hugh Norris Trail, one of the park’s most popular hiking trails, will be inaccessible until the roads are reopened. Park maintenance will work on the road this afternoon and tomorrow morning and we anticipate that the roads will be fully open and repaired by 2:00 pm tomorrow afternoon, August 15th. We thank you for your patience while the roads are being repaired.
