Major changes coming to Flagstaff's Mount Elden-Dry Lake Hills trails system

FOREST SERVICE WANT'S YOUR INPUT ABOUT PROPOSED 2014 FLAGSTAFF TRAIL CHANGES 
Coconino National Forest is asking for input regarding proposed changes to Flagstaff Ranger District trails around Mount Elden. Plans will impact the six trailheads and 14 routes that are currently within this system. Ideas being tossed around include: adding 23 miles of new shared-use trails, realignment of existing trails, trailhead improvements, better signage, and decommisioning unauthorized roads. The ultimate goal is to achieve a sustainable trail system that provides better access for hikers, climbers, equestrians and mountain bikers while protecting sensitive wildlife and archeological sites. The various studies, vetting processes and public commentary reviews will be completed in 2014 with final plans put into action thereafter. Voice your comments and concerns NOW!

How to be involved 
Will the changes proposed meet your needs?
If yes, what benefits do you foresee?
If something is missing, what is it, and why is it important to you?
