Need to Know

The western end of the trail currently terminates at Agua Verde Rd (as mapped) and the singletrack continuing west from Agua Verde through AZ State Trust land is planned but is likely several years away from construction.


This is the new east-west singletrack that connects from Agua Verde Rd. to the McKenzie Ranch race course North Loop on Red Hill Ranch Rd.

Our family also moved to this rural part of Vail for peace and quiet. Our 2 mile dirt road is privately maintained and paid for by each and everyone of us who chose this rural lifestyle. The McKenzie Ranch and Hohokum trails are accessed via our road or the neighboring Agua Verde Road, which means a considerable increase in traffic causing it to deteriorate much quicker. Pima County Board of Supervisors, NRPR and SDMB never considered the impact on our road let alone Marsh Station Road, which was already falling apart before the additional traffic caused by these new trails. This is easily seen by all the patching the county is constantly doing to potholes etc. Just the construction equipment and dump trucks that traveled our road for 10 months; whether it was to bring in gravel for the large parking lots, gates and fencing to lock out whomever they choose, dumpster trucks for hauling torn out cacti and mesquite trees, and let's not forget the trail building equipment. Now they decide to pave the Gabe Zimmerman trailhead parking lot! Shouldn't this money be going to our roads?! People coming out here to use these trails probably have no clue that this county land, prior to these trails being built on it, was used by the property owners in the area; whether it was for target practice, hunting, horseback riding, and traveling via all terrain vehicles. The rolling hills that were once the serene landscape many of enjoyed viewing from our homes is now tainted with trails and strangers, both of which are quite visible from many of our homes. I'm sure there are also a lot of wildlife that now feel forced out of what was once a quiet and peaceful area for them too! Sep 26, 2018
Let's set the story straight: 1)This land has no water on no houses were ever going to be built on it. 2)Red Hill Ranch Road was built prior to 1945...mostly likely by ranchers looking for a way to get there cattle up to good grazing land. 3)Residents will NOT accept any "generous donations" from anyone other than Pima County, since this is their responsibility.

I have live out here for over a dozen years and enjoy it out here. Recently a private bike club has jammed this unwelcome bike trail down our throat. There were meetings that took place and everyone who lives out here was against it but, some of the members of this bike club are in with County people and we were rode roughshod over. I live out here to have peace and quite. Ride my quad in the evenings to enjoy the wildlife. I have been locked out of the trail we use to ride. I don't mess with their trail but why am I denied my ride? Another problem I see is the extra traffic on the rode, especially the dirt rode. We all pay to have the road maintained, it is a private road not County maintained. Also the extra trash and noise that is attributed with the bike trail. Which leads me to my last point. A lot of money was spent that came from the County to have LOCKED parking lots. Who locks up an empty parking lot. If it's a County trail, why is a private bike club allowed to control it for their own needs and exclude the the people who's back yard they are in? Oct 7, 2018
