More trails opening up for off-road vehicle users

Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Off-road vehicle users will have more trails to ride in the Coconino National Forest.

The forest signed off on a plan this week to open 95 miles of trails between Flagstaff and Munds Park to all-terrain vehicles and motorbikes.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the decision came after off-road vehicle users complained that the Forest Service hadn't provided enough narrow, winding trails in its travel management plan.

Jim Hall of the Coconino Trail Riders says the group will work with the forest to help create the network of trails. It will be a mix of new trails, some that had been marked for closure and illegally built trails that will be allowed to stay open.

The project is expected to take up to five years and cost $70,000.
