Projects Goals

Prescott National Forest asked VOAz to build a new trail at Salida Gulch to replace a trail that followed the drainage and passed through a petroglyph site. Unfortunately, the temptation to touch such artifacts is too great when access is that convenient. The oils from the skin will, when contact is repeated over time, degrade these artifacts. The new trail was sited to bypass several other sensitive archeological zones as well and take trail users to an elevation that affords views of the forest and the canyon it skirts. Thus the new name. The completed trail will be about two miles long between the Trailhead off Walker Road on the south east side of Prescott and ends at John's Tank where it connects with a shared use trail. The finished trail is 30" wide and will serve hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.

The Salida Overview Trail 95 project began in the spring of 2005 and is scheduled to be completed by June 2010.
