    Please Help Send an Email to the FS Regarding a Sedona Trail Study

    Some of you may have heard of the Trail Study
    (http://data.ecosystem-management.org...?project=22614) going on in Sedona regarding the adopting of eighteen plus non-system trails and giving them system status.

    I personally believe all the trails being studied are worthy of being brought into the current system, and it is my hope you will help making that process a reality someday by emailing Jennifer Burns at the Red Rock Ranger District.

    I have provided a sample letter, which will work in conveying a favorable response, and it is my hope that MTRB viewers who have had a positive riding or hiking experience in Sedona will either email the sample letter or a more detailed letter to FS in support of adopting the trails being scoped. Obviously, if you are against adopting those trails being studied you can do as you see fit.

    Please help by emailing Jennifer a favorable response. I am attaching my Microsoft Word response to the FS for your reference if you want to go into a huge amount of detail about each trail you may be familiar with.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    TD


    This is a copy of my short to the point SAMPLE LETTER:

    To: Jennifer Burns, Recreation Staff Officer, Red Rock Ranger District
    Email Address: jmburns@fs.fed.us

    From:

    Re: Sedona Trails Study Scoping Process

    Dear Ms. Burns:

    I am a user of several of the unsanctioned trails being studied for adoption by the Red Rock Ranger District, and it is my hope that many if not all the trails being scoped will someday be brought into a system status and be considered sanctioned trails.

    The inclusion of these trails in the Red Rock District will help with increasing Sedona’s reputation as a wonderful hiking and biking destination.

    Sincerely,
    Attached Files Attached Files

    There is a big difference between ripping and skidding.

    I really appreciate your support regarding the Scoping process. I know you have a large group of like minded friends and if there is some way you could communicate to them to help out with this email campaign I would appreciate it.

    Is there anyway you might be able to cross post the thread to NSMBA?

    I was thinking of offering a chance for a two night free stay in my motor casa and a tour of trails being scoped for those who emailed the scoping response to the FS. My idea is to keep a list and do a drawing of all those who did an email to the FS. People woud have to email me that they responded so I could put their name on the list.

    Thanks for email to Ms. Burns. When you get here next check out the soon to be new FS trail called Aerie. It is a recently approved intermediate (+) FS trail, which should be completed by Sept. If you are in Sedona in the Winter let me know.

    TD, just sent my letter. Thanks for all your doing up there. It's been a very busy summer for me, but I'm dying to get back up and ride with you again.
    Better than most, not as good as some.
