You should pay attention to these signs. There are sometimes places where the water flows across the road during monsoon season. The water can be deeper than it looks and can flow very quickly. The water can also be a indicator of a coming flash flood. Please obey the signs. Apparently someone was angry at this sign. See the bulletholes?
You may encounter some potentially harmful animals during your hike, especially if you leave the established trails. Bark Scorpions, Tarantulas, and various types of Rattlesnakes are indigenous to the area. I am building some pages about these animals for my Arizona Page.
During and after the monsson season (normally July to September) the trails can become overgrown. Use caution when hiking on these trails. When they are overgrown it increases the chances you will encounter some possibly harmful wildlife.
For your safety (so you don't run across dangerous animals) and to preserve the history of the area; please stay on the trails.
It is illegal to dig and/or remove anything from the Fairbanks Area. They will have you arrested if you are caught. Help us preserve our history by leaving things where you find them.
There are some open mine shafts in the Fairbank Area. Stay outside the wire because the area close to the shaft is unsteady and can fall away/
There is very little shade along the main Fairbank Trail and only one sort of bench. I would not sit there when it is overgrown like in this picture. Good way to get bit on the butt by a rattler.
