The popular trail on Camelback Mountain will be closed from January 28th until Fall for work on the trail and parking area.
The construction will include adding parking spaces from 68 to 132, putting walkways throughout the parking area, adding a restroom and renovating the trail to make it more erosion resistant.
“The $3 million funding for the project is coming form the Parks and Preserve Initiative,” said David Urbinato, Public Information Officer for the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department.
“That is a voter approved sales tax initiative, it’s one tenth of one percent and all of the proceeds of the Parks and Preserve Initiative go to park improvements, building new parks…”
Urbinato says the improvements were brainstormed by hikers, residents of Paradise Valley and city staff.
