The Cornville area may be getting its own recreational trail system in the near future. Aside from Yavapai County Distrct 3 Supervisor Chip Davis and Assistant Public Works Director Mike Willett, another proponent of the project is Yavapai County District 2 Supervisor Tom Thurman, who said he believes trails are a good idea everywhere. Thurman’s district  expanded to the Cornville area after redistricing.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.

“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.
