Trail Maintenance Priority Area #10

TRAIL MILES

400

FORESTS INVOLVED

  • Coconino National Forest, Arizona

400 miles of trails provide a wide diversity of experiences for people who visit the Red Rock Ranger District on the Coconino National Forest. Visitors can day hike, backpack, horseback ride, mountain bike, and ride motorized single-track trails in the cooler months and streamside hike in the heat of the summer. These well-loved trails are in need of substantial trail maintenance to address a backlog of trail erosion caused by recent wildfires and to protect sensitive and listed species habitat and the high occurrence of archeological sites.

With the priority area focus, the district and local partners are addressing public access—particularly for nearby rural communities, resource protection, and improved visitor safety.
