Crew repairs damaged trails
KINGMAN - Coconino Rural Environment Corps members reclaimed a half mile of illegal vehicle ruts off the Monolith Garden Trail in the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area recently.
Damage from just one vehicle to fragile soils and vegetation can last for decades. The Kingman Trails Project is one of nearly 58 federal stimulus projects totaling more than $16 million taking place on BLM public lands in Arizona.
The youth crew returned to Kingman on May 17 to begin phase two of the Kingman Trails Project. The crew is currently carrying out trails maintenance on the Twenty-six Wash Trail in the Mount Tipton Wilderness. The final phases of the project include work on the Badger and Castle Rock trails within the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area and Wabayuma Peak Trail in the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness.
The projects are expected to be completed in mid-September. The BLM Kingman Field Office recreation staff is assisting and monitoring the work activity.
