The Sedona area is known as a mecca for mountain biking thanks to an endless number of trails and natural beauty. But with it comes an ongoing issue — trespassing on private property.

Sedona Bike Coordinator Doug CoppAt the Sedona City Council meeting Tuesday, June 25, the council was asked to provide direction as to how staff should proceed regarding the acquisition of easements or the purchase of access corridors in the problem areas.

The issue stems from mountain bikers accessing U.S. Forest Service trails around Sedona through private property. While some property owners are fine with it, or are simply unaware of it, others are not. Former Vice Mayor Cliff Hamilton, Sedona Bicycle Coordinator Doug Copp and Jennifer Burns of the Forest Service — all part of the Trail Access Protection Project — gave a presentation and said 17 sites were investigated. Based on usage, that number was eventually narrowed down to five. According to the city, all five trails identified cross private land, but provide important connections within Sedona’s Trails and Urban Pathway Plan.
