Kingman Photos: In the Loop

The Kingman Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management and several local outdoors groups helped create and celebrate the opening of a new hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking trail Saturday at Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area near Fort Beale Drive. The new section of the Castle Rock Loop Trail adds another loop to the miles of trails available in the 11,300-acre recreation area, which is a mix of federal, state, county, city and private lands. The BLM thanked Larry McCall, a landowner in the area, for his help, as well as the help of several volunteers and organizations who made the new trail a reality. Conner Camacho worked on the trail as part of his Eagle Scout project and the Coconino Rural Environmental Corps came from Flagstaff to help on the trail. Several local bicycle and horseback riding groups also helped create and will maintain the trails. Len Marceau and Matt Driscoll of the BLM helped organize the event on Saturday.
