Boy Scouts install gate on trailhead access road


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Some Tucson-area hikers are complaining about a gate installed by the Boy Scouts that is preventing them from driving to the start of a popular trail into the mountains southwest of the city.

The top executive for the Catalina Council of the Boy Scouts of America says the group blocked access to the short road leading to the Cat Mountain Trailhead because of vandalism and illegal dumping. Ken Tucker says the land is private property owned by the Scouts.

Tucker tells the Arizona Daily Sun the Scouts want to be good neighbors and are fine with hikers and people walking their dogs using the access road.

The council has negotiated an agreement with Pima County that allows the county to develop a walking trail providing access to the trailhead.
