    At the last RTCA meeting on 5/16/13. It was suggested by Cate that some of us who know the trails that are being suggested for adoption by the FS serve as trail guides of those trails to show those people at the meeting the trails being suggested by actually hiking them. My wife and I said we would be happy to show anyone interested in the trails they might be interested in.

    Will Patrick Kell and IMBA support our efforts in trying to showcase those trails to the Sedona community who are interested in getting out and hiking them? Maybe we can get the Red Rock News to do an article asking others if they want to also join in on such hikes?

    My question to Patrick is based on my experience at the 5/16/13 RTCA Trail Planning Meeting where a few knowledgeable attendees were able to list some future trail ideas that they think would be good trail additions to the current Sedona system trail inventory. My question to Kate the facilitator was how many new miles of FS system trails will the FS be allowing in a go forward basis? She didn’t know the answer, but wrote down the question I assume will be asked of the FS in a future meeting.
    My first question to Patrick is how many new miles of system trails is IMBA looking to see be added to the Sedona trail system over the coming years before a new trail plan is re-done in the distant future? My second question is will new currently unconstructed trails like what Lars and Phil are recommending take a higher IMBA priority in being brought into a system status, than the low hanging fruit trails that have already been constructed and used by the mountain bike community for years and have shown to be a good work product?
