Summer in Northern Arizona


Summer is here and it's a great time to be in the high country. While you're out recreating on our public lands, please be mindful of the current fire restrictions in Coconino County, on the Coconino National Forest, and the City of Flagstaff. With the monsoon season approaching, watch the weather forecast and be prepared.
