On October 11th, the Tusayan Town Council voted unanimously to approve the Tusayan Community Trails Master Plan by Trails Inspire.
The trail plan is a non-motorized, multi-use system for hikers, mountain bikers, runners and equestrians. It includes 10.4 miles of single-track, natural surface trails; 1.94 miles of graded gravel-paved trail and a .81-mile Grand Canyon History Trail, which will be wheelchair accessible. The Grand Canyon History trail will tell the story of human history at the Grand Canyon, similar to the Trail of Time for geology in the National Park.
Below are the maps included in the Master Plan, they show only the proposed new trails and may change based on public comment and feedback from the Kaibab National Forest.
The council agreed that the plan would benefit from an additional comment period, which will be open for a month. There will be a public meeting for feedback on the plan at Tusayan Town Hall. Updates will be available soon as to when the public comment period and meeting will occur.
