Granite Hotshots Memorial Trail nearly finished

- A trail that will lead people to the site where 19 firefighters were killed during a 2013 Yarnell wildfire is nearing completion.
 
The Prescott Daily Courier reports that the trail and the Yarnell park honoring the Granite Mountain Hotshots is on track to open next month.
 
Arizona State Parks officials say a dedication ceremony for Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park is scheduled for November 29.
 
According to a project manager, the 2.85-mile trail stretches from the trailhead to a ridge overlooking the site.
 
There will be benches, interpretive signs and an observation deck along the trail.
 
Plaques with the names of each fallen firefighter will be placed every 600 feet.
 
The firefighters died in June 2013 when winds shifted and trapped them in a brush-choked canyon.
