Verde Valley Trail Planning Workshops Announced

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest is developing a proposal for the Verde Valley Trails Project.  This project would include both motorized and non-motorized trails around the communities of Cornville and Rimrock, Arizona. A map of the project area is available on the Coconino Forest website at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/coconino/landmanagement/projects.

The public is invited to attend workshop style meetings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the following locations:

  • May 1, 2012, at the Beaver Creek Baptist Church in Rimrock, AZ.
  • May 9, 2012, at the 3rd Annual Cornville Merchant Showcase, Oak Creek School, Cornville, AZ.

The project area is generally defined by the following boundaries:

  • North to Cornville Road and the junction of I-17 and Forest Road 618
  • East to Forest Road 618
  • South to the Verde River and Highway 260 in Camp Verde
  • West to the community of Cornville

The Forest Service would like to hear your thoughts, comments and/or concerns. Helpful information includes: what types of trails you would like to see in the project area, what concerns you might have with this proposal and anything in particular you feel may need to be addressed in the analysis. The goal is to provide motorized recreation opportunities for both single-track (motorcycles) and larger off-highway motorized vehicles (ATV/UTV), and to provide non-motorized trails for equestrians, mountain bikers and hikers.

Comments will help us develop a proposed action and focus our analysis.  To be the most helpful in the planning process, we are requesting that you try to provide your comments by May 12, 2012.

Those that attend the public meetings or send us comments will be notified when the proposed action is available for review.  If you have any questions, you may call Sarah Belcher, Landscape Architect, at 928-203-7521.
