How to Keep Off-Road Trails Open and Accessible

When it comes to outdoor recreation, Sedona has something to offer everyone. From novice hikers to off-road adventurers, there are a number of beautiful, world class, trails to explore throughout the city and beyond. In order to keep these trails accessible, healthy and open, it is up to everyone to take ownership of these places and treat them with respect. One way to do that is by maintaining safe speeds when riding off-road.

When off-roading, it is very important to maintain a safe speed through neighborhoods and on trails to keep impacts low and to keep residents who live near connector trails and access roads undisturbed. Never ride idly around campsites, neighborhoods, or trailheads. Remember, that these are shared spaces and it’s important to practice trail etiquette and have mutual respect for other users and those that are impacted by trail use.

Lowering speed around crowds and people ensures they stay safe and no accidents are caused.  When approaching a blind corner, slow down and anticipate that a person or another rider may be out of sight. Doing donuts on the trail can damage natural resources and possibly cause injury.

Some Sedona trailheads can’t be accessed without driving through neighborhoods. Help keep residents safe and undisturbed by keeping the noise and speed down and being respectful of those in the area. It’s up to everyone to ride responsibly and with respect and to Tread Lightly! on Sedona’s beautiful trails.
