The Cornville area may be getting its own recreational trail system in the near future. The U.S. Forest Service is currently working on a project that would adopt several existing roads and trails and turn them into Forest Service system trails.
“We are currently undergoing an environmental assessment of a trails proposal that includes a historic wagon route and a few trailheads,” Forest Service Assistant Recreation Staff Officer Kevin Lehto said. “We anticipate a decision before the end of the year.”
The wagon route is one that historically ran from Cottonwood to Cornville, which is the ultimate goal of the trail system — to connect Cottonwood to Cornville and eventually to Sedona.
