August 12, 2014 – Tucson, AZ- Monsoon season storms have caused flash flooding in Saguaro National Park’s Tucson Mountain (West) District this afternoon. The flooding has damaged and washed out many segments of the Scenic Bajada Loop Drive. As a result, all of the dirt roads in the Tucson Mountain (West) District, except the segment leading to the Sus Picnic Area, have been closed at this time. Closed roads include Hohokam Road and Golden Gate Road. Paved roads in the area, such as Kinney Road, Sandario Road and Picture Rocks Road remain open, though drivers and cyclists are cautioned that there may still be debris and flooding in area dependent on weather conditions. Crews are working to repair the damaged roads as quickly as possible, and notifications will be posted on the park’s website as updates on road conditions are available. At this time, all trails in the Tucson Mountain (West) District remain open, though visitors are advised to be aware that there may be additional rain and resulting erosion in the area.
