Forest Service should let Sabino Cyn. road erode

TUCSON -- With the road up Sabino Canyon destroyed by natural flooding, now is the time to keep it that way to restore and re-wild this spectacular canyon.

Roads cut habitat and wilderness experience.

Trams could still operate up to the blowout, and hikers could still hike up the whole canyon. In fact, it would be a better experience for hikers without the motorized tram and paved road.

Let the Coronado National Forest know you want the road to erode. Keep it closed, for nature and our own spirits. Let's do the right thing for Frog Mountain (aka Santa Catalinas) and not repair the old road.
