A Coalition of Non-motorized Trail Users

Creating Trails & Save Outdoor Spaces

As an organization we are concerned not only with building and maintaining sustainable trails, we are partners in creating safe outdoor spaces for our citizens and visitors to enjoy.  As the municipalities grow, so does the traffic on our trail systems. YTA has a goal of increasing community awareness of trail etiquette, trail safety, user education, and continuing our practice of maintaining our trails at a sustainable standard.

You
Donate

As a very small entity with limited resources (but hard working volunteers) we need financial help in reaching these goals. So much of what needs to be done, requires marketing, publicity, and publications.

We Write
Grants

Our goal is to turn every dollar you donate into more funds by researching and writing grants for projects to continue the endless work to maintain and improve our trail systems.

Support
Trails

For example, in 2018, we received a grant for $12,824 for connectivity improvements to the Peavine Trail from Prescott to Chino Valley and $6,000 to provide a kiosk in the Dexter Neighborhood Community Garden.

Our major donors & supporters

We would like to thank these individuals and organizations for sharing our vision of protecting and preserving trails in our area.

Prescott Circle Trail

The Prescott Circle Trail is a network of our best non-motorized trails that combine to make a 54 mile loop around Prescott. The PCT is jointly managed by the City of Prescott (25 miles) and Prescott National Forest (29 miles). The trail comes as close as three miles to downtown Prescott and is easily accessible with 15 trailheads along its length. A lap of the PCT has about 6000 feet of elevation gain and can be enjoyed as an adventurous one or two day trip or a multi-day trip over a period of days, weeks or months. Three of Prescott’s four seasons – spring, summer, and fall – offer superb conditions on the PCT.

A direct result of committed members of the community working collaboratively with the Forest Service and other government entities, the Prescott National Forest signed the final decision for the Greater Prescott Trails Plan (GPTP), Mid-Term Project #2 October 15, 2020.  YTA is proud to have been part of the process.
The plan authorizes approximately 64 miles of motorized/multi-use trails. With the Seven Mile Gulch single track motorized trail system,  the decision authorizes the removal of 40 miles of unauthorized/unsustainable trails while replacing them with a superior sustainable system. It also authorizes the construction of two new trailheads to improve trail system access, while decommissioning one unsustainable trailhead.

A load of boulders delivered to 4S parking lot of the Peavine in Chino Valley. These will be used as mounting blocks for equestrians. They will be moved into place soon by a volunteer with a front end loader.
