    The Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund (SRRTF) Board of Directors elected Kevin Adams as the Fund’s new President. Kevin will replace Jennifer Burns who is stepping down after two years as President while continuing on the Board. Kevin is a retired Marine, Fortune 500 and Non-Profit executive who brings 40+ years of experience to the SRRTF and is currently the Treasurer of the Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition.

    “I am excited to raise funds for our great redrock trail system” said Kevin Adams. “I look forward to working with Jennifer, the SRRTF board and the community to support our trails and trail users.” Adams added.

    “The SRRTF helps the US Forest Service to fund annual trail maintenance; and with local businesses and the Sedona Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau to raise funds. In addition, the SRRTF applies for grant funds through other partners and government entities” stated Jennifer Burns, outgoing SRRTF President. “Kevin has the essential ingredients to be president: experience and knowledge to do the job and passion for our trail system” Burns added.

    The SRRTF is a 501c3 not for profit organization whose mission is to raise funds to pay for trail maintenance and enhancement on National Forest lands near Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek. These trails receive over 1.7 million trail uses annually, being some of the most popular trails in the national forest system. They require maintenance to keep them safe, enjoyable and environmentally compatible. Federal funds are not sufficient. It is the mission of the SRRTF to help close the funding gap. The SRRTF board of directors includes local hikers, cyclists, runners and equestrians who work with the Red Rock Ranger District to provide trail maintenance funding. Since inception, the Fund has donated over $300,000 for trail maintenance and enhancements. For information see www.redrocktrailfund.org
