Accomplishments

The Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund has raised more than $2,475,000 since inception - all for the maintenance and enhancement of the trails in the Red Rock Ranger District.


The funding from the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund has been vital to the USFS's recent successes. Over time, the Red Rock Ranger District has used the funding to help preserve, protect and grow the trail system by:

  • Increasing the season crew sizes from 4-14 workers
  • Reducing the trail maintenance backlog
  • Rerouting overused trails to improve sustainability
  • Building new trails to expand the trail system
  • Repairing and replacing trail signs, cairns and kiosks

Monies have also allowed the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund to create an endowment fund (held by the Arizona Community Foundation) to ensure that funding continues.
