Swift Trail Parkway on Mount Graham closed at Ladybug Saddle

Safety concerns from flooding, debris
July 31, 2017

PHOENIX ‒ State Route 366 on Mount Graham in southeastern Arizona is closed until further notice because of safety concerns associated with flash floods and debris flows caused by the recent Frye Fire.

The road, also known as Swift Trail Parkway, is closed at Ladybug Saddle near milepost 31. The area is about 20 miles south of Safford.

The Noon Creek Picnic Area and Angle Orchard remain open to the public.

Drivers may encounter ADOT and US Forest Service crews working along the open section of SR 366. Delays as long as 30 minutes are possible.

The closure was put in place to protect the public from potential flash floods during monsoon storms. There is no scheduled time for the road to reopen.
