Join the entire Flagstaff trails community in the annual celebration of trails!

This year we will be working on the Kelly Multi-use Trails project. This trail system will include 52 miles of single track trail between Lake Mary Road and Munds Park when completed that will be open to motorcycles, mountain bikes, equestrians and hikers. A substantial addition to the Flagstaff area trail system!

This will be the first National Trails Day on the Coconino National Forest on a trail open to the Coconino Trail Riders motorcycle club. Our club and it’s members have been responsible for the creation and/or maintenance of some of our favorite trails, (some now closed to motorcycle use), like Schultz Creek, Secret, Upper and Lower Moto and more.

What to bring, location and other details:

Hello, just an early reminder about Trail Day, When the good folks at the Overland Expo heard we were having a Trail Day on the same weekend as their Mormon Lake event (Thanks Sam).

They offered up FREE admits to all that Volunteer for work on our May 18th date. So not only do we get to build New single track trail, we also score lunch, a CTR T-Shirt, a Rocky Mountain Race Gas Card and a chance to see some pretty cool things at the EXPO. This just keeps getting better and better.

We will be working off Lake Mary Rd and Frontier, near 3 E and 867 A there will be signs.

Start time 8:30 am

Thanks, see you there

CTR Trail Day – Saturday, May 16

i May 14th No Comments by

Rumor has it that it’s a little warm down in the “Valley of the
Sun”…….

Forecast high for “in town” Flagstaff is 78F for this Saturday, (and
probably 74-75 where we’ll be building trail), so if spending a
few short hours building superb BRAND NEW MOTORIZED TRAIL,
having a superb lunch, then riding your quiet dirt bike on
“world class” singletrack at 7800-8500′ elevation (read: “cool”)
has any appeal to you, join CTR this Saturday morning at 8:30.

We’ll be staging at FS road #9002 and the “Gas Pipeline”

Free t-shirt for workers (this year’s “Trail Day” shirts turned out
awesome).

Upcoming CTR trail days:

June 6th – National Trail Day

June 20th – New Motorized trail

July 18th – New Motorized trail (CTR will be having “banquet”
that weekend)

August 8th – New Motorized trail

September 5th – New Motorized trail – Pedals vs Pistons (WE
HAVE THE TROPHY FROM LAST YEAR AND INTEND TO KEEP IT !!!)

October 10th – New Motorized trail

See ya there
