Hot Weather Trail Advisory
We've entered the hot weather season. The City of Buckeye advises not to hike during hot weather conditions and ask that you follow all safety guidelines included in the "Happy Trails" checklist. Use caution and go at dawn or dusk when there is more shade and less intense heat. Full sun temperatures can be more than 20 degrees warmer than official shade temperatures.
Trail difficulty ratings increase one level when temperatures reach above 90°, so trails rated easy become moderate and trails rated moderate become difficult.
Fire Ban in Effect
A fire ban is in effect at Skyline Regional Park due to extreme fire danger from a combination of low humidity, increasing temperatures, and frequent high winds. The annual fire ban prohibits open, wood, and charcoal fires in the park. Propane or gas grills may be used, but only at designated campsites and picnic ramadas. The fire ban is expected to be in effect until mid-October.
