Trail Maintenance Bulletin Board

An effort to keep the trails we enjoy in the best shape possible


With all of us out riding all the time on the multitude of trail options in the Prescott area, it would be great if we could all work together to report issues we see.  Overgrowth, erosion, trees down, shifting rocks or damaged waterbars, missing or damaged signage.  What parts of your favorite trails have been neglected?

Here is how this bulletin board will work.  As with all posts on this site, the comment option at the end of each is open to all users... even anonymous users.  If you see something that needs attention during your time in the back-country, please post up what you have found.  Trail numbers will be very helpful and the better description you can give of location as well as the issue needing attention the better the action that can be taken.

From there, PMBA can work to create trail maintenance events along with the PFS when required.  Through using this website and our page on Facebook volunteers can be located and individuals can be made better aware of what needs to be done. This bulletin board approach is a bit experimental, but lets see the kind of results we can produce working as a community and not solo cyclists.

Without this awareness, any sort of group effort in regards to repair or maintenance doesn't even have a place to start.

One tip... please click the above title of this post to link to the actual permanent post address.  Then bookmark that address as to allow you to easily return and post up what you have found.  There is also a link to this bulletin board on the upper left margin of our site.

Thanks in advance for your participation.


Report it to fix it.  
Volunteer when you can to maintain it.  
Simple as that.

  1. There's a double-trunked tree down on trail 396, about 5 minutes past the little pond if you're riding away from White Spar Road. Both trunks are ~6" diameter.

  6. White Rock/318 is in need of brushing. It's a heavy-traffic multi-user group trail and sight lines are an issue, as is the continued widening of the trail.

  7. Tree down across the 326 (Thumb Butte) about a 1/4 mile north of the 314, in the ravine area.

  10. 2 trees down on 326 yesterday - about half way between 323 and the bottom. Upper one is pretty big. Lower one was pretty rotten and relatively light so I pulled it mostly off the trail.

  11. Tree down on 327. Closer to Pearlstein end. About 6" around.

  12. Tree down on the 347, one mile S. (uphill) from the 345 connection with the 347, or 1/2 mile S. (uphill) from the 309 horse trail - which doesn't help much if your heading N. or down the 347. No place to get around it - it's surrounded by Manzanita brush!

  22. As of yesterday, 12.9.12, there was a downed log/snag across the Tr. 322 downhill at the bottom end of the "Chute" section (3/4 of the way down from 326). Be careful.

  23. 03/02/13 - There were 2 trees across Trail 366, on the re-routed portion just before it intersects with 9401J. Moved one out of the way, but couldn't get the second one completely off the trail. Another tree was across 9401J about 0.5 mile from same intersection.

  26. I lost a red multi-tool and a Park chain tool yesterday. I was out on 327 between Big Juniper and 393 and Aspen Creek TH. Also did 266 descent (that's where I think the stuff popped out…my saddle bag blew out). Anyone finds this stuff, please post here. Thanks much,

  27. I'm sure many are aware of the downed tree across Trail 327 that is part of the Whiskey course. Hopefully this will be taken care of by race day, or a decent ride-over will build up.
