    Verde River Crossing Closure - Bartlett Dam (Log Corral)

    The closure is from 12/1/17-6/30/18.

    AZ Game & Fish has announced the closure of the Verde River below Bartlett Dam as a result of a Bald Eagle habitat that's been found there. Vehicle entry / crossing the river is prohibited during the closure, so be advised that completing the Log Corral trail by crossing the Verde is off the table until 7/1/18.

    Those who boat with any frequency on Lake Pleasant and other area bodies of water are familiar with Bald Eagle habitat closures and know that LEOs are serious about enforcing the restrictions.

    There will likely be a steep penalty for anyone caught attempting the crossing.

    Log Corral is of course still open, but you aren't supposed to continue on through the Verde below Bartlett Dam.

    Thanks to Russ for the heads up...

    Meanwhile, no one gives a rat's *** about the well-coiffed eagle.

    Soon Metro phoenix will be off limits as well.

    We have eagles living in our neighborhood. I hope we don't have to park miles away and walk in.

    The eagles are learning just as the coyotes and Javelina have, that it's okay to co-habitat with humans as long as it's within city limits.

    Re: Verde River Crossing Closure - Bartlett Dam (Log Corral)

    Just talked to both Tonto and AZGF trying to narrow down where the exact closure is located. From the vague description from AZGF the Verde is closed from Bartlett dam all the way to the Salt river. Tonto has nice maps of their closures so I can see exactly where the area is located. However, the Tonto web page does not show anywhere near the number of closures that the AZGF site does. I guess my main frustration is that I want to be well informed on where we can and cannot wheel. But when the info for closures is vague, how can we know for sure if we are legal or not?
