The Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund has raised more than $3.0 million 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 kiosk
  • User education - everyone can be a steward of the forest, if they know how

Special donations have also enabled us to create an endowment fund (held by the Arizona Community Foundation) to ensure that funding continues for future generations.

History of new trail construction

61 miles of new trails constructed in Sedona's Red Rock Country, made possible with support from the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund

Money and muscles

In addition to cash funding, local volunteers contribute significantly to accomplishing what needs to get done. With a combination trail crew workers from the USFS staff, American Conservation Experience seasonal teams and volunteers from the non-profit Friends of the Forest, impressive new construction and heavy maintenance milestones were made possible.
