With the Slide Fire burning in Oak Creek Canyon heading into Memorial Day Weekend, the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau urges those with travel plans to proceed with their plans but to remain diligent about staying informed about fire conditions.

Jennifer Wesselhoff, President/CEO of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau, reminds travelers that Sedona and Flagstaff are open for business. “Sedona is open for business and we can assure you that the fire shouldn’t have many impacts your stay,” says Wesselhoff.

While Oak Creek Canyon from Sedona to Fort Tuthill in Flagstaff is closed, all other streets and highways are open. The USFS has closed some trails and trail roads, but more than 200 miles of trails are still open for visitors to explore and enjoy. Visitors planning on traveling between Sedona and Flagstaff, or going to the Grand Canyon, can still do so by using State Route 179 (an All American Road and Scenic Byway) and Interstate 17.

“We understand the serious nature of this fire and our primary concern is for the citizens and businesses impacted by the fires. We extend our best wishes to those impacted and we offer our gratitude to the firefighters and public safety officials working to keep everyone safe,” says Wesselhoff.
