Visiting the Granite Mountain Hotshot Memorial - Park at the Yarnell Fire Department 


Big Idea

  • It’s the 8th Anniversary of June 30th, when the City of Prescott lost 19 brave firefighters
  • Many Yavapai County residents are expected to visit the Hotshots Memorial
  • Please do not park illegally along the shoulders of SR 89
  • The Yarnell Fire Department has provided a shuttle service to the park
  •


Parking alongside the shoulders of SR 89 is dangerous


As we approach the 8th anniversary of June 30, and the loss of 19 brave firefighters, many Yavapai County residents may be considering a visit to the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial in Yarnell.  


If you do decide to make the journey this year, and decide to stop and hike to the memorial at the top of Weaver Mountains, the Arizona Department of Transportation asks that you do it safely by taking advantage of the shuttle service and not park along the road. 

A press release from ADOT states:  

Parking illegally along the shoulders of SR 89 to get to the park is not the best nor the safest way to show honor to these men.  The shoulders of state highways are reserved for emergencies only.  Parking along them causes distractions to drivers along the highway and can prevent emergency vehicles from gaining access to those who need help.  Plus, it puts you and your family and friends at greater risk right next to the highway. 

There is a better solution to risking your family’s safety and parking on the highway.  The Yarnell Fire Department has provided a shuttle service to the park on the weekends when the memorial park sees the most visitors.  The shuttle service runs Friday through Sunday every half hour from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  To get the shuttle, drive past the park into Yarnell and park at the Yarnell Fire Department admin building.  22555 N. Hwy 89 (www.yarnellfire.org
