    The Coconino Trail Day is June 1, National Trails Day. Come out and do your part. We'll be working on the NEW Kelly Canyon Riding area. Work starts at 8:30 and ends with lunch provided by the Coconino Trail Riders. Tools and guidance provided by the National Forest crew. Free t-shirts too!

    Location is off Lake Mary road about half way between Flagstaff and Lower Lake Mary. Take F.S.Road 867 west off Lake Mary Rd and go about a mile and you'll find a crowd at the fork of 867 and 867 D. Last weekend we made 1.2 miles of single track trail and had about 30 people including a contingent from the AZ Trail Riders. It's hard work, but it's fun and rewarding with a great group of people. There is a group camping in the area Friday and Saturday I believe. I don't have details on that but can get some if anyone is interested.
