Saguaro National Park has opened all trails and campgrounds that had been closed because of two wildfires in the Rincon Mountains.

Hikers are cautioned to stay on trails especially in the burned areas, the park said in a news release. Park officials said there could be hazards in the burned areas.

The larger of the two fires, the Deer Head Fire, was contained Aug. 15 after it had burned about 1,100 acres. Park managers were using the fire to benefit the environment. The fire was first reported July 24.
