Sabino Canyon partially open to use, but with inconveniences

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Even though National Parks across the U.S. are closed, here in Tucson people can still enjoy the outdoors by hitting the trails in the Coronado National Forest - though they might be inconvenienced.

A slogan for the Sabino Canyon states it's a ‘Desert oasis located in the Coronado National Forest', visitors can enjoy that beauty, but there will be no visitor's center, no administration to answer questions and no bathrooms.  All are closed due to the shutdown. 

Tucson News Now reported yesterday about the Saguaro National Park, both east and west locations being closed.  Today the Coronado National Forest is another story, it is a much bigger area to try and monitor. 

Campers that are currently on the grounds will be asked to pack up and move out. 

According to officials with the National Parks, the Parks stand to lose $450,000 a day while the government is shut down.
