VULTURE MOUNTAINS RECREATION AREA

UPDATE: June 12, 2013
Parks has been unable to secure a BNSF Railroad underpass permit for the trestle near the ADOT rest area as originally desired and outlined in the Master Plan (Chapter 4, page 60). Parks is exploring alternative crossing locations; specifically along the northern edge of the Hassayampa River Preserve property for non-motorized trail use. The BSNF application process may take up to one year.

Parks is also consulting with an architectural firm to design site plans at the Hassayampa River Preserve property (Chapter 6, page 114) to include an educational center, upgraded restrooms and parking, pathways to link to existing trails, and other enhancements.
