BOULDER CITY, Nevada – Goldstrike Canyon and Arizona Hot Spring trails, which were temporarily closed Aug. 1, will reopen Sept. 12.
The trails were closed because public safety incidents in these canyons have doubled from 2013 to 2014. In 2013, there were 17 incidents, which resulted in one fatality, 31 patients and five medical transports. In the first seven months of 2014, there were 37 incidents, resulting in three fatalities, 35 patients and 13 medical transports. Since the closure, there have been zero search and rescues from these locations.
The initial National Park Service closure, scheduled to end Aug. 31, was extended through Sept. 11 because of a variety of factors, including weather and employee and visitor safety. The Bureau of Reclamation closure was scheduled to end Sept. 14. It will end early. The trails will reopen in their entirety Sept. 12 in time for the popular fall hiking season.

Yesterday was hell day for a new batch of volunteers with RRSAR as they attended their first day of training called "SAR 101". There was lots of running, push ups, and stokes litter packaging and carrying as they got the basics of what it takes to be in Red Rock Search and Rescue. As they learned how to report and handle incidents, they learned what to expect from Red Rock SAR and what Red Rock SAR expects from them. The day ended with everyone dirty and beat up, but high fiving one another and proud to be a new probationary member of of the team.
New members have one year to accomplish a lot more training and to certify up to RRSAR and NASAR standards. Judging by the group we saw yesterday, they have the right stuff and more high five days will be coming!
