Black Canyon Trail System

Black canyon trailSome projects can only be done with a lot of shovel-power but organizing a volunteer crew is a huge undertaking. Through a partnership with the BLM, trail building training was offered to volunteers in March 2004 at Ben Avery shooting range north of Phoenix. Volunteers and contracted crews continue to work directly with Recreation Solutions to complete the over 70 miles of linear trail system.

Motorized Travel Planning

Phoenix District of BLM has a General Service Agreement with Recreation Solutions to provide Motorized Travel Planning. Recreation Solutions has completed thousands of miles of route inventory in Arizona. Whether on foot, bicycle or motorized access, we have a capable crew available to do trail inventories, layout and design or condition assessments.
