Word of the closure was issued Saturday at 2:15 p.m. in a tweet by the Pima County Sheriff's Department. PCSD are urging hikers in Sabino Canyon and Bear Canyon to head down as well because of flash flood risks striving from more monsoon rain.

Tanque Verde Falls is experiencing increased water levels in the area as well.

In a statement released Saturday, The Pima County Sheriff's Department said the rain from Friday's storms have caused water levels in the Tanque Verde Falls area to increase three times the level they were last week when Search and Rescue crews rescued 17 people from the area.
