Yavapai Trails Association was awarded $17,500.00 in funding to complete this trail maintenance project to benefit hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.
YTA has partnered with the Prescott National Forest and Back Country Horsemen of Central Arizona to leverage private donations, collaboration, and volunteer resources to ensure the funding through the Arizona Community Foundation completes as much maintenance work as possible. The grant award will be utilized to fund a critical backlog of primarily brushing work on the Almosta Trail System in the Prescott National Forest. The total restoration project budget is valued at over $43,000 worth of trail improvements.
The Almosta Trail System is a network of approximately 20 miles of multi-purpose trails in the Williamson Valley area that is a popular trail system especially with the equestrian community. Originally built by and for the equestrian community, this beautifully rugged system is receiving increased usage by all user groups. Bids will be taken for a major portion of the brush removal, opening of blind corners, and improving the drainage. In addition, signage will be added within the system, and a trail counter installed.
Restoration work on the Almosta Trails will start late summer to early fall of 2021. The Stephanie Woods Team Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate BloomTree Realty 928-237-4455 prescottazhomefinder.com
