Some tips to help you enjoy your recreation experience...
- Fireworks are not allowed on the National Forest.
- Winter brings snow to the high country. Be avalanche aware!
- When camping or picnicking, please keep your site clean, free from trash and food. Otherwise animals and insects are attracted to your site.
- Bag your trash and take it home with you. Help us keep our forests clean and green by "Packing It Out!"
- Never leave your campfire unattended. When you leave, put it out, dead out! See Forest Orders for any current fire restrictions
- Human waste is a big problem when thousands of people converge on the Forest. Please see Leave No Trace - Dispose of Waste Properly for detailed instructions on handling this "delicate" situation.

Driving motorized vehicles on the Forest
Keep motor vehicles on designated routes and areas. If you plan on camping, driving off-highway vehicles, hunting, or exploring the backcountry, get a free Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) to know which roads are open to motor vehicle use. Know before you go.

Walnut Canyon National Monument (Hopi: Wupatupqa) is a United States National Monument located about 10 mi (16 km) southeast of downtown Flagstaff, Arizona, near Interstate 40. The canyon rim elevation is 6,690 ft (2,040 m); the canyon's floor is 350 ft lower. A 0.9 mi (1.4 km) long loop trail descends 185 ft (56 m) into the canyon passing 25 cliff dwelling rooms constructed by the Sinagua, a pre-Columbian cultural group that lived in Walnut Canyon from about 1100 to 1250 AD. Other contemporary habitations of the Sinagua people are preserved in the nearby Tuzigoot and Montezuma Castle national monuments.
