Public meeting for new Tucson Mountain Park trails

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The public is invited to attend a meeting on planned re-route of Tucson Mountain Park trails, Tuesday evening.

Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation (PCNRPR) is holding the meeting, according to a recent release, to show how the project will take place and who will be conducting the work.

Volunteers, over the next four years will be working on the Tucson Mountain Park trails project. They will take several old dirt roads and social trails in the Starr Pass region of the park that are little used and situated in hard to get to areas and replace them with four new 'single track' trails.  These new trails will be fully sustainable and protect resources said the release, while providing hikers a more enjoyable hike. The trails will be perfect for walkers, hikers, equestrians, wheelchair users, runners and mountain bikers. 

"The existing trails run with the fall line in several cases and that's counter to a high-quality, sustainable trail," said Planning Division Manager at PCNRPR, Steve Anderson.  "We're aiming to fix that problem now."

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at Correctional Officers Training Academy (COTA) 5601 W. Trails End Road.

Comments may be sent to Steve Anderson, Planning Division Manager, 3500 W. River Road, Tucson, AZ 85741.
