    Obey the Signs

    Sign

    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?

    Harmful Animals

    by Basaic Written Aug 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Overgrown Trails

    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.

    Do Not Take Anything But Pictures

    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.

    Open Mine Shaft

    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/

    Where Do I Rest?

    Bench

    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.
