Due to the Flagstaff Fire and the ongoing wildfire risk in the county, the Mesa Lab, parking lot, and NCAR mesa road will close to the public on July 4th at 4:00 p.m. The closure extends to all visitors, hikers, and cyclists.
Employees requiring access to the Mesa Lab for work needs will be allowed up the road after 4:00 p.m. with their UCAR identification.
Security will have increased patrols during the day and will post an officer at the bottom of the NCAR road starting at 2:00 p.m. to make sure everyone is aware of the 4:00 p.m. closure.
Starting June 28, there will be signage at the bottom of the NCAR road announcing the July 4th closure. The road will re-open for normal use on Friday, July 5, at 6:00 a.m.
Thank you for understanding the need for these measures.
