The Cornville area may be getting its own recreational trail system in the near future. The U.S. Forest Service is currently working on a project that would adopt several existing roads and trails and turn them into Forest Service system trails.

The U.S. Forest Service applied for a grant to help finalize the National Environmental Policy Act process and begin trail construction on the project, but were not successful.“We are currently undergoing an environmental assessment of a trails proposal that includes a historic wagon route and a few trailheads,” Forest Service Assistant Recreation Staff Officer Kevin Lehto said. “We anticipate a decision before the end of the year.”

The wagon route is one that historically ran from Cottonwood to Cornville, which is the ultimate goal of the trail system — to connect Cottonwood to Cornville and eventually to Sedona.

    Camp Verde needs to be included in this trail system. I have ridden my horse many times between Cornville and Camp Verde, following an old trail system that includes the old rock carins, many of which are still standing. From what I understand, the carins were from the days when the cattlemen didn't want the sheep grazing in the same area as the cows, so carins were built 1 mile apart and the sheep had to stay within the carins. Lets preserve these old trails as they are part of the VV history.
