Temporary Closure of the Tom’s Thumb Area in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve
As most of you know, the Tom’s Thumb Trailhead has been under construction since last fall. We are making great progress, and expect the new trailhead to be complete in July.
Due to the construction activities, we must close the Tom’s Thumb area to public access for a few days. The access from Paraiso AND
the access from 128th
Street will be closed, so there will be no way to access the northern region of the McDowell’s by vehicle during this temporary closure.
The temporary closure will occur on the following days:
- Wednesday, April 11th
- Thursday, April 12th
- Friday, April 13th
The Tom’s Thumb and East End Trails will still be accessible from the Gateway Access Area, just no vehicular access on the north side of the McDowell’s.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and appreciate your patience.
Thank you again for your support of the Preserve, and please call me or email me if you have any questions.
