The upper part of Cathedral Rock Trail in the Coconino National Forest will be closed for construction for the next two months.

Forest officials say the area will close to the public while the Red Rock Trail Crew reconstructs rock walls and installs check steps on the trail.

The trail will be closed from the Templeton Trail junction to the upper terminus, as well as areas 200 feet in any direction of the trail. The closure is set to last through March 31.

The lower quarter mile of the trail – the Cathedral Rock trailhead to the Templeton Trail junction – will remain open to the public during the project.

Forest officials urge visitors to seek alternate trail options on the Coconino National Forest.
