The Sun Corridor Trail: Concept to Reality
|Maricopa Trail will be part of Sun Corridor Trail |
There’s exciting news for Arizona hikers. The Sun Corridor Trail, a planned 1,500-mile multi-use route that will run from Douglas, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada is gaining support and traction. A new website with maps, plans and segment descriptions was rolled out last week.
|The route will run through the Mormon Lake area|
The route will incorporate existing trails such as the Black Canyon Trail, Prescott Circle Trail, Flagstaff Loop Trail, Sedona Urban Trail System, Maricopa Trail, Central Arizona Project canal trails and Tucson’s Tribute Trail for an epic tour of the Southwest’s natural resources that include deserts, mountains, forests, grasslands and waterways.
|Prescott Circle Trail will be part of the route|
|The trail will run through the Huachuca Mtns |
The project is a joint effort among city, county, state and federal agencies as well as non-profit organizations that work together to build support through marketing and public involvement while developing strategic plans that will connect communities, benefit economic development and provide nature-based tourism opportunities.
|Sedona Urban Trail System will link with the route|
|The trail will tie in with the Black Canyon Trail|
While parts of this epic route are open and ready to explore, the grand-scale plans have the potential rival world-class, interstate icons such as the Pacific Crest Trail and the Appalachian Trail. Check out the new website, spread the word and learn how to support its purpose and participate in its growth, construction and protection.INFO:
