Az. State Trust Land Non- Urban Project

Arizona State Trust Land Department (AZSTLD) received OHV grant funding from Arizona State Parks & Trails OHV Program for a Non-Urban Lands project. One intent of the project is to establish rules and guidelines for OHV recreational activities. To quote Lisa Atkins, AZSTL Commissioner Lisa Atkins, “A Key component of the plan will be guidelines for OHV uses, including the designation of areas open to OHV use, the types of uses that would be authorized, and other appropriate measures to actively manage and provide an enforcement component of these activities…”

TRS received a letter inviting us to participate in a Non-Urban Lands Project Stakeholder Group. At this time, it is not clear exactly what our level of participation in the project will be, but TRS certainly will apply the best resources to match the demands of the project.

More information will be provided as it becomes available. So, stay tuned!

Red Spring Trail Maintenance Day April 3, 2021

Red Spring Trail Maintenance Day April 3, 2021

The day started promptly at 8AM with eight (8) TRS volunteers participating in the trail maintenance workday. We finished around 11:00am, well before it got too warm. Thanks to Troy R, Mike C, Gary, Diego, Alvaro, Noah, Jonathan S. and yours truly for taking time to tend to our trail system.

The Trail Crew was focused and efficient today. We made quick work of trimming back trailside brush, removing some larger tree limbs to allow room overhead so you wouldn’t smack your helmet as your rode by and even trimmed down a small stump or two along the way. Using some natural materials (rock, tree limbs and brush) we added some visual controls at a couple of corners to improve your ability to navigate a tight corner or trail intersection. We only moved a few rocks off the trail when absolutely necessary. In total we improved the trail along 3.76 miles of TR (Single Track Trail) #483 and TR #482 between FR (Forest Service Road) #4136 and FR #684.

Hope you can join us at the next trail maintenance day or at the upcoming Trash Clean-up day on Saturday April 24th.
