The area was shut down as part of the Bighorn Fire closure order.

"We've worked to implement emergency treatments so we can provide as many recreation opportunities to the public as possible." said CJ Woodard, Santa Catalina District Ranger. "Visitors should be aware that Sabino Canyon looks different after the fire due to mitigation measures implemented by the BAER team. Hazards still exist in the burn scar and the general forest, so I implore visitors to be safe, heed the signs, and be vigilant"

The shuttle and visitor center are still closed, according to the Coronado National Forest.
