Escudilla Mountain Wilderness re-opens for hiking this weekend

After being closed to public access since last year's devastating Wallow Fire, the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest will re-open Escudilla Mountain Wilderness beginning this weekend.
Escudilla Mountain Trail: August, 2006
However,  the announcement also advises all entering the area to "look up, look down, look around" for stump holes, teetering snags and other dangerous post-blaze hazards.
