Cindy, Bernie, & Sharon Nuding met with Dennis Smith, a trail blazer from Northwest Woodland Services, Inc. on May 5, 2016. Cindy, Bernie & Dennis rode their OHV’s down the new Tonto Bridge Loop Trail. Dennis surveyed the work that needed to be done to make the trail from Pine to the Tonto Bridge ridable. The cost will be around $40,000.00 to do this.
Our next step is to hire a “grant writer” to write the grant for the money necessary to complete this task.
Before we can submit the grant, the Tonto National Forest Service Supervisor must approve and sign the Travel Management Plan that is sitting on his desk. The Tonto Bridge Loop Trail is on the Plan.
We realize that this has been a slow process, but when it is necessary to get approval from government entities, the process can drag-on for quite sometime. We all have had to be patient.
